Hornqvist scored on a deflection in the first period to give the Penguins a 2-1 lead. It was his 12th goal of the season and broke a personal six-game scoring drought.

Hornqvist registered five goals and three helpers in 12 games since returning from injury.

Hornqvist will presumably slot back into the lineup for the Penguins after almost a month on the shelf due to a lower-body issue. The veteran has racked up 11 points through the first 20 games he's suited up for in 2019-20, continuing to see his production decline from the prime of his career.

Hornqvist's presence for the team's practice session on the road is certainly a step in the right direction. Considering Pittsburgh is heading into a back-to-back with a home clash against the Predators on Saturday, the Swedish winger is unlikely to be ready until Monday's matchup with Ottawa at the earliest. Where Hornqvist fits into the lineup once given the all-clear remains to be seen, but he should retake his spot in front of the net with the No. 1 power-play unit.

Head coach Mike Sullivan told reporters that Hornqvist was going to be out longer-term, and this latest news would seem to expand upon that timeline. Pittsburgh will also be without Sidney Crosby (groin), Nick Bjugstad (abdomen) and Brian Dumoulin (ankle) until at least January and will need to rely even more on star Evgeni Malkin.

Hornqvist is being evaluated for a lower-body injury he sustained during Monday's practice, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.
While the nature of the injury won't be revealed until the evaluations are over, it's concerning since Hornqvist spent seven games on IR in November with a lower-body issue. When healthy, the 32-year-old winger has been a solid member of the Penguins' top six, recording 11 points, 50 shots on net and 50 hits over 20 games. Hornqvist will aim to shake off this injury by Wednesday's matchup against the Blues.
The Penguins have activated Hornqvist (lower body) off injured reserve ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Islanders.
Hornqvist is still technically consiered a game-time decision against the Islanders, but the fact that he's been activated off IR ahead of puck drop all but confirms he'll be available. The 32-year-old vet will slot into his usual role skating on Pittsburgh's third line and second power-play unit against the Islanders.
Hornqvist (lower body) will be a game-time decision versus the Islanders on Thursday, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.
Hornqvist missed the Penguins' previous seven games due to his lower-body issue. The winger practiced in a regular jersey for two straight days and appears to be trending in the right direction.

Hornqvist (lower body) won't be in the lineup versus the Islanders on Tuesday.
Hornqvist practiced in a regular sweater Tuesday, but he isn't quite ready to play.

Hornqvist has missed the past six games dealing with a lower-body injury he suffered on Nov. 3. His return date is still unknown, but the fact that the veteran is finally back to skating for the first time since his injury is at least is a positive sign for his recovery.

Hornqvist (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday and is expected to be out long-term.
Hornqvist exited Saturday's game against the Oilers late in the third period with the issue, and as evidenced by this news, it will cost him more time. The veteran has racked up six points in his last seven contests, so his absence will be a big loss for the Penguins. In his stead, Dominik Kahun could draw into the lineup, and Jared McCann could get a bump up to the second power-play unit.
