      Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Picking up the pace

      Hornqvist picked up a power-play assist and registered five shots on goal Saturday. He's scored four of his season's eight points in the last six games, a sign that he's emerging from a slump. Hornqvist is also averaging nearly four shots per game during his improved play, with 23 shots in his last six.

      Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Practices Tuesday

      Hornqvist looked good in Tuesday's morning skate though coach Mike Johnston said he still hasn't discussed Hornqvist's status with trainers. The team hasn't confirmed Hornqvist's availability but it seems like a good bet he'll go against the Wild. The Swede left Saturday's tilt after taking an Evgeni Malkin shot to his abdominal/rib areas.

      Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Misses practice for undisclosed reason

      Hornqvist missed practice for an undisclosed reason Monday. Hornqvist was a one of a number of Penguins who skipped practice Monday, but he was the only player coach Mike Johnston didn't chalk up to a cold or illness. It's unclear exactly what's ailing him, but it could put his status in doubt for Tuesday's contest. His status should be updated at some point Tuesday to confirm whether or not he will play in the contest against the Wild.

      Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Producing more frequently

      Hornqvist netted his fourth goal with 58 seconds remaining in the third period of a 2-1 loss Friday. He scored a second goal with time running out, but the goal was waved off because of a kicking motion. Hornqvist has struggled for most of 2015-16 but he's scored all four of his goals in the last seven contests.

      Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Demoted to third line

      The Penguins demoted Hornqvist to the third line during Monday's practice, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Hornvqvist skated right wing with Chris Kunitz and Nick Bonino on Monday. The winger has gone pointless with a minus-4 rating over the last three games. Despite seeing ample power-play time Hornqvist hasn't been able to finish in front of the net -- he's scored just two goals (and two assists) in 14 games. He'll get another crack with Sidney Crosby but for now the Pens are looking to jumpstart a lackluster offense.

      Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Gets monkey off his back

      Hornqvist broke through with his first goal of the year Thursday, taking a Sidney Crosby feed in the high slot and firing a one-timer past the Sabres' Chad Johnson. He also contributed a power-play assist on Evgeni Malkin's goal. The Swedish winger and his fantasy owners can finally breathe a sign of relief after Hornqvist managed just a lonely assist and a minus-4 rating over the first nine games of the season. Now that the monkey's off his back, it wouldn't be too surprising to see Hornqvist go on a nice little run. It's well worth noting that he was back on the top power-play unit for the Pens' only man-advantage situation Thursday.

      Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Loses standing on man advantage Tuesday

      Hornqvist was taken off the team's top power-play unit in favor of Chris Kunitz on Tuesday. The Pens prefer Kunitz'a passing around the net over Hornqvist's and the move paid immediate dividends -- a dormant power play went converted 2-for-3 opportunities against the Panthers. Hornqvist has only one assist in six games but the entire team has gotten off to a slow offensive start. Fantasy owners would be wise not to overreact and cut bait on the Swede.

    • Pens' Hornqvist To Open Camp On Malkin Line

      News: Coach Mike Johnston said Tuesday that Patric Hornqvist would open training camp as the right wing on the second line next to Evgeni Malkin, reports.
      Analysis: As expected, the Penguins' offseason acquisition of Phil Kessel will push Patric Hornqvist off Crosby's line, but landing next to one of the NHL's premier pivots in Malkin isn't much of a downgrade. It's quite likely that the arrival of Kessel results in Hornqvist seeing his average ice time (17:39) and power-play time (3:33) drop from a season earlier, but there's still plenty of firepower surrounding him to put him on track for another 50-point campaign if health permits.
    • Penguins' Hornqvist Played Through Rib Issue

      News: Patric Hornqvist played through a broken rib during the NHL playoffs, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
      Analysis: Patric Hornqvist, who managed to rack up three points in five playoff games prior the Penguins' recent elimination, will now have a full offseason to heal up and will presumably be 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around. In his first campaign with Pittsburgh, the 28-year-old winger notched 25 goals and 51 points in 64 games.
