Sitting six points out of a playoff spot with just 15 games to play, Ottawa will need a miracle run — much like last season — to qualify for the postseason.
And now, the Sens will have to do it without one of their most rugged rearguards.
Per the Ottawa Sun, the tear won’t require surgery.
Borowiecki, 26, had been a pretty regular fixture in the Sens lineup this season. He’s one of just three blueliners to have appeared in 60 games — Erik Karlsson and Cody Ceci are the others — and while he’s not much on offense, he did average more than 14 minutes per night and led the team in hits.
