Pens' Hornqvist Extends Goal Streak To Three Games

News: Patric Hornqvist potted his 19th goal of the season Wednesday against Washington.
Analysis: He's scored four goals and five points in his last three tilts. Evgeni Malkin set up Patric Hornqvist's goal Wednesday. With both Malkin and Sidney Crosby playing well lately, the Swede figures to benefit as much as anyone on the Pens.

Pens' Hornqvist Finding His Range

News: Patric Hornqvist netted two goals and added an assist Sunday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Prior to Saturday, the Penguins reunited Patric Hornqvist with Crosby and the results have paid immediate dividends. He scored power-play markers in back-to-back contests over the weekend, giving him four points in his last two games. Hornqvist is playing his best hockey since October right now. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Pittsburgh plays just two times in the coming week.

Pens' Hornqvist Scores 5th PP Goal Saturday

News: Patric Hornqvist scored his first power-play goal since Nov. 8 against St. Louis on Saturday.
Analysis: His 16th goal of the season came on a slapper from the high slot off a down-low feed from Sidney Crosby. Patric Hornqvist also registered a season-high five hits as the Pens followed through with a strong bounce-back game after a tough loss to Columbus on Thursday. Coach Mike Johnston reconfigured his even-strength lines prior to Saturday, moving Hornqvist from Evgeni Malkin's right wing to Sidney Crosby's right side.

Pens' Hornqvist Adds Goal, Assist In Win

News: Patric Hornqvist collected a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: The winger is putting together a nice season for his new team, with a line of 15/18/33 through 41 games on the season. He's cooled off a bit recently, so it's a good sign to see him back on the score sheet with multiple points.

Pens' Hornqvist Returns Tuesday, Achieves Goal

News: Patric Hornqvist returned to the ice for first game since Dec. 27 on Tuesday, and he potted an empty-net goal in a win over the Jets.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist admitted he was a bit sluggish early in the game, but said he felt stronger in the third period. The winger gives Pittsburgh a net-front power-play presence, something that's been sorely missed in the last month. Hornqvist will continue to play on the No. 1 line and see regular time on the top power-play unit. The Penguins are counting on him for a strong second-half finish.

Pens' Hornqvist Activated From IR

News: Patric Hornqvist (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday, indicating he'll be ready to play later in the evening against the Jets, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist was back on the ice for Monday's full practice for the first time since sustaining his lower-body injury in late December. While the winger described himself as a game-time decision following the Pens' morning skate Tuesday, his participation in both regular line work and power-play drills -- along with the demotions of Bryan Rust and Scott Wilson to the minors -- suggests that he'll be available. The 28-year-old, who has 29 points and a plus-12 rating in 33 games, is expected to join Beau Bennett and Brandon Sutter on the Pens' second trio.

Penguins' Hornqvist To Be Game-Time Decision

News: Patric Hornqvist (lower body) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: While Patric Hornqvist is clearly progressing, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review suggests that the forward remains iffy for Tuesday's contest.

Pens' Hornqvist (Lower Body) Practices Monday

News: Patric Hornqvist (lower body) was on the ice for practice Monday.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist didn't was reportedly "smiling from ear to ear" while taking the ice, which hinted that he could be ready for Tuesday's game against the Jets, and coach Mike Johnston indicated as such following the conclusion of practice. If that is indeed the case, he will need to be activated from injured reserve at some point Tuesday. Either way, it's a good sign for the winger, who has been sidelined nearly a month due to the ailment.

Pens' Hornqvist (Lower Body) To Receive X-Rays

News: Coach Mike Johnston said Tuesday that Patric Hornqvist (lower body) will receive X-rays later this week.
Analysis: The lower-body ailment has sidelined Patric Hornqvist for nine consecutive games, with the winger remaining off the ice throughout that time period. After receiving the X-rays, Hornqvist should have a clearer timetable for his return. Johnston said he expects the 28-year-old, who has 29 points in 33 games this season, to resume skating in four or five days. In a best-case scenario, he could return to action shortly after the All-Star break concludes.

Pens Place Hornqvist On IR

News: Patric Hornqvist (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist is set to miss multiple weeks after suffering the lower-body injury in Saturday's loss to the Capitals. He's the seventh forward and 10th player to hit the Penguins' injured reserve list.

Pens' Hornqvist (Lower Body) Out A Few Weeks

News: Patric Hornqvist, who left Saturday's loss to the Capitals with a lower-body injury, is expected to miss "a few weeks."
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist took a puck to the leg on a shot attempt by teammate Scott Harrington in the first period Saturday, skating to the bench but not returning from the locker room after the first intermissionl. The Penguins should have a more definitive estimate for Hornqvist's return once he resumes skating, but it sounds like that won't occur for multiple days. The Penguins already have seven forwards out with injured or illnesses, so Hornqvist's setbacks will force the organzation to further plunder its well-scavenged AHL ranks.

Hornqvist Leads Pens With Two Points Tuesday

News: Patric Hornqvist scored his second goal in as many nights -- and added an assist -- Tuesday in Tampa Bay.
Analysis: He finished plus-2 with two hits and four PIM against the Lightning. Patric Hornqvist is healthy and skating like he did at the start of the season.

Pens' Hornqvist Snaps Slump Monday

News: Patric Hornqvist snapped an eight-game goalless streak Monday with his 11th goal of the season against Florida.
Analysis: He finished with a plus-2 rating and added a personal season-high five hits. Pens coach Mike Johnston reunited the line of Sidney Crosby, Chris Kunitz and Patric Hornqvist two games ago with encouraging results. The former Pred appears ready to go another run.

Pens' Hornqvist Back Friday After Week Absence

News: Patric Hornqvist was held pointless in his return Friday, taking four shots and compiling two PIM in 18:40 TOI against the Flames.
Analysis: With usual linemate, Sidney Crosby, out again Saturday, Patric Hornqvist is expected to serve as a right winger on a line centered by Brandon Sutter with Nick Spaling on Saturday. The scoreless Friday dropped Hornqvist under a point-per-game scoring pace for the first time in his Penguins career -- he now has 25 points (11G, 14A) in 26 games.

Pens' Hornqvist On Track To Play Friday

News: Coach Mike Johnston said after Friday's optional skate that he expects Patric Hornqvist (head) to play later in the evening against the Flames, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: After practicing fully Thursday and enduring no setbacks during Friday's optional session, Patric Hornqvist looks ready to assume his post on the top line. The winger, who missed the last two games with a suspected concussion, has been a seamless replacement for James Neal, whom he was swapped for over the summer. He's notched 11 goals and 25 points in 25 games and should be poised to blow past his career bests in all scoring categories.

Pens' Hornqvist Likely To Play Friday

News: Patric Hornqvist (head) is likely to play Friday against the Flames, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Though he's officially being considered a game-time decision heading into Friday, Patric Hornqvist's full participation in practice Thursday -- including involvement in power-play drills -- suggests there's not too much ambiguity regarding his status. Coach Mike Johnston has never revealed whether or not Hornqvist sustained a concussion after taking a hit from the Canucks' Ryan Stanton that ended up costing him two games, but it will mostly be a moot point if the winger returns to action Friday. Expect his availability to be formally announced after the Penguins complete their gameday morning skate.

Pens' Hornqvist Eyeing Friday Return

News: Patric Hornqvist (head) will practice with the Penguins on Thursday, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Though Patric Hornqvist has missed the team's previous two games after suffering a head injury, the Penguins have remained reluctant to confirm or deny that the winger suffered a concussion. In any case, it doesn't sound like Hornqvist's situation is overly serious, as he'll take to the ice Thursday following Wednesday's team off day. If he completes the workout without any complications, Hornqvist could be cleared to rejoin Sidney Crosby on the top line in advance of Friday's game against the Flames.

Pens' Hornqvist Will Not Play Monday

News: Patric Hornqvist (head) will not play in Monday's game against the Rangers, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Head coach Mike Johnston said that Patric Hornqvist is still undergoing tests on his head injury and his status will be updated on Tuesday. Hornqvist did not play the third period in Thursday's game against the Canucks after he was hit hard by Ryan Stanton. The 27-year-old winger has 11 goals and 14 assists in 25 games played this season.

No Sunday News About Pens' Hornqvist

News: The Penguins will likely update Patric Hornqvist's status following the team's game-day skate in New York on Monday.
Analysis: The team didn't practice Sunday, so there was no opportunity to find out the results of Patric Hornqvist's extensive concussion testing. Steve Downie took his spot on Sidney Crosby's line Saturday against the Senators.

Pens' Hornqvist (Head) Out Saturday

News: Honrqvist (head) will not play Saturday against the Senators, Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen reports.
Analysis: The team still has not disclosed the results of Patric Hornqvist's concussion tests, but he will miss at least one game after taking a big hit in the second period of Thursday's tilt. Consider Hornqvist day-to-day until more information becomes available.

Pens' Hornqvist Being Evaluated For Concussion

News: Patric Hornqvist is being evaluated for a concussion, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist was set to take a baseline test Friday which would have determined whether or not he was experiencing concussion-like symptoms, but the results of that test aren't yet known. The team won't have a good estimate for his return date until his situation is properly diagnosed, but the odds seem against him suiting up Saturday against Ottawa.

No Post-Game Update For Pens' Hornqvist Thursday

News: Coach Mike Johnston had no update on Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed) following Pittsburgh's 3-0 loss to Vancouver on Thursday.
Analysis: It's possible that the organization will release further information regarding Patric Hornqvist after Friday's practice. The Pens' top two lines have been decimated by injuries and ailments in the past couple weeks. Pascal Dupuis, Chris Kunitz, Beau Bennett and now Hornqvist are missing from the lineup.

Pens' Hornqvist Leaves With Injury

News: Patric Hornqvist wasn't on the bench or ice for the start of the third period Thursday against the Canucks, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist's injury is likely the result of a big hit laid on him by Ryan Stanton late in the third period. The team will likely update his status at some point in the near future, but the team will need to shift lines to fill in while he is out.

Pens' Hornqvist Scores In Loss Friday

News: Patric Hornqvist scored his seventh goal in eight career games against Carolina on Friday.
Analysis: The former Nashville forward was reunited on a line with Sidney Crosby several games ago. Since then, the two have shown the same good chemistry they displayed as a pairing earlier in 2014-15. Patric Hornqvist registered five shots on goal Friday (a good sign) for just the second time in his last 13 games. He'll look to add onto his 25-point total Saturday night in a rematch between the two teams.

Pens' Hornqvist Finding Range With Malkin

News: Patric Hornqvist scored his 10th goal and added an assist in Friday's shootout loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: The forward registered five shots on goal, his highest total since October. It's taken time for him to find chemistry with Evgeni Malkin, but the two played their best game together Friday. Patric Hornqvist has scored just one power-play assist in the last five games, but Pittsburgh wasn't awarded one power play against New York.
