Penguins' Patric Hornqvist: Team divulges winger's hand injury

Hornqvist is rehabbing a hand injury that required surgery over the summer, per GM Jim Rutherford, though he's expected to be ready by the end of training camp.

This may come as a shocking development to Penguins fans, but consider that the club has known about his ailment all along, and evidently team brass felt that the start of training camp was the most appropriate time to alert the public. The net-front resident produced 44 points (21 goals, 23 assists) in 70 games last regular season, despite averaging a tick under 16 minutes of average ice time per contest.
