Pens' Hornqvist Back In Action

News: Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Coyotes, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: There was some thought that Patric Hornqvist might not be able to return Saturday after he saw only limited involvement in line rushes during Friday's skate, but it looks like the Pens' training staff gave him the go-ahead to play. Making his first appearance since March 15, the winger will slot in on the top line next to Sidney Crosby, bolstering a Penguins attack that has struggled mightily in Hornqvist's and Evgeni Malkin's (lower body) absence.

Pens' Hornqvist Not Counted Out For Weekend Return

News: Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed) practiced with the Penguins on Friday and is being listed as day-to-day, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Fellow injured top-six forward Evgeni Malkin (lower body) also participated in Friday's session, but seemed to be more involved in line rushes than Patric Hornqvist. That would seem to suggest that Malkin will play Saturday versus the Coyotes and Hornqvist won't, but a ruling of the status on either player won't come until the Penguins check in on their progress overnight. Even if Hornqvist sits out Saturday, he'll still likely have a shot at suiting up for Sunday's tilt with the Sharks.

Pens' Hornqvist Won't Play Thursday

News: Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed) won't return to the lineup Thursday against the Hurricanes, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist was able to skate Wednesday morning, but isn't far enough along in the recovery process to give it a go Thursday. He'll remain in Pittsburgh while the team travels to Carolina and figures to continue working out on his own in preparation for a return to the lineup over the weekend.

Analysis: Patric Hornqvist did not participate in Sunday's practice, while Evgeni Malkin (lower body) was limited. It was previously reported that Hornqvist might be ready by Tuesday, but coach Mike Johnston essentially ruled that out.

Pens' Hornqvist Could Be Back As Soon As Tuesday

News: Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed) is skating and could return as soon as Tuesday at home against St. Louis, ROOT Sports in Pittsburgh reports.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist stayed in Pittsburgh for the team's three-game road trip, which ended in Arizona on Saturday. The forward, who suffered a non-contact injury Sunday, appeared to injure his oblique. The Pens have scored only four goals in three games during Hornqvist's and Evgeni Malkin's absences.

Penguins' Hornqvist To Miss About A Week

News: Patric Hornqvist will be out for about a week due to an unspecified injury that he suffered Sunday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: Per the report, Patric Hornqvist won't join the Penguins on their three-game road trip, which begins Tuesday against New Jersey, but on the plus side, the timetable put forth by coach Mike Johnston on Monday suggests that Hornqvist has avoided a long-term injury.

Patric Hornqvist

Two-Point Evening For Pens' Hornqvist

News: Patric Hornqvist scored a goal on his only shot and assisted on another Thursday in a win over the Oilers.
Analysis: The most unusual thing about Thursday's performance isn't the two points, but the fact that Patric Hornqvist only took a single shot on goal -- the first time that's happened since Feb. 17. He's been red-hot of late, with 11 points over his last nine contests.

Pens' Hornqvist Buries Kings In Overtime

News: Patric Hornqvist scored the overtime-winning goal Saturday against Los Angeles.
Analysis: Patric Hornqvist has now recorded seven goals in his last seven games, putting him at 22 tallies on the season. He's red-hot right now and has fired a whopping 18 shots on goal in his last four outings. Skating on the top line with Sidney Crosby, Hornqvist should be an automatic roll.

Pens' Hornqvist Stays Hot Friday

News: Patric Hornqvist punched in a pair of goals Friday -- one of which was the game winner -- in a 5-2 road win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Other than last game's scoreless effort against Colorado, Patric Hornqvist now has points in five straight games, posting six goals and two assists during that span. He appears to be hitting his stride again after an 11-game dry spell in which he managed just four points, potentially making the 28-year-old one of the more dangerous fantasy contributors in the final six weeks of the season.

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.

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.
