  • Hornqvist (head) warmed up before Monday's game against the Avalanche and will be in the lineup, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The Swede did not end up missing any time after getting hit in the head with a puck Saturday. That's good for the Penguins and fantasy owners. Hornqvist has 11 goals in 28 games, and he's tallied 10 power-play points as well.

  • Hornqvist (head) will be a game-time decision against the Avalanche on Monday. Hornqvist appears to be no worse for wear after taking a puck to the head in Saturday's tilt versus Toronto -- including taking part in line rushes at practice. Prior to getting hurt, the winger had racked up eight points in eight games -- four of which were recorded on the power play. Even in a bottom-six role, the Swede continues to log minutes with the man advantage, which gives him top-end fantasy value.

  • Hornqvist exited Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs after taking a puck to the face and coach Mike Sullivan was unable to provide an update on his status following the game, saying only that the winger was being evaluated. It's obviously a scary play anytime a player takes a puck to the face, but the time that a player needs to return from such an injury is often quite varied. We won't know any sort of timetable for Honrqvist's specific recovery period until the team releases the results of his evaluation.

  • Hornqvist picked up a power-play goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers. Hornqvist assisted on Conor Sheary's first-period tally to open the scoring and knotted the score at 3-3 with a power-play goal early in the third. The Swedish power forward has lit the lamp in four consecutive contests and extended his point streak to six games with this performance.

  • Hornqvist's two-point game Saturday extended his current point streak to five games and six points (three goals, three assists). The Pens flattened the Sabres 5-1 and Hornqvist was a big part of that win. His slow start to the season is behind him. Use him well.
