Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Game-time decision Wednesday

Hornqvist (concussion) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's meeting with the Islanders, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Hornqvist has missed the last six games after taking a puck to the head against the Capitals. If he's cleared to suit up, the winger is a near lock to be back on the first line alongside Sidney Crosby, and he'll probably be slotted back into the power play as well. With five goals and eight helpers over his first 16 games, the 29-year-old is on pace to have the best season of his career.
