Senator’s Mikkel Boedker Excited to Return to Canada

Ottawa Senators’ winger Mikkel Boedker is excited to return to Canada, where he played junior hockey, as he came over in a June trade from the San Jose Sharks.

“I’m very much (excited),” Boedker said, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun. “It’s a good opportunity to play some good hockey and join a Canadian franchise that’s about to turn the ship around. It’s good to be part of something like that.”

Boedker finished with 37 points last season and Ottawa is hoping that he can offset some of the production from forward Mike Hoffman, who was sent to San Jose in return.

“When people talk about Ottawa I don’t think they give them enough credit because I think there’s a lot of capable players and a lot players that have done some damage in their careers on the stats sheet,” Boedker said. “I still think it’s a very capable team and we’ve just got to get back to that. We’ve just got to get back to where it’s all in every night and every night matters.”
