Patric Hornqvist could be called up in front of the NHL disciplinary office for his hit on Colton Sceviour Saturday.
No penalty was called and Sceviour did not return although it did happen with only 2:05 left in the game. Hornqvist scored for the second time in two games but it would be a crimp in the plans of the Penguins if he was suspended for a couple of games. Stay tuned. Oct 15 - 9:31 AM

Patric Hornqvist (hand) is dressed for Wednesday's game against the Washington Capitals.

Hornqvist missed the first three games of the regular season. The winger had 21 goals and 44 points in 70 games with the Pens last season. He'll only have fantasy value in deeper standard leagues. He's skating on a line with Greg McKegg and Conor Sheary.

Patric Hornqvist (hand) is probable for Wednesday's game.

Hornqvist is being termed as a game-time decision by the Penguins, but he was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. If he does play, he will probably skate on a line with Conor Sheary and Greg McKegg and see work on the second power-play unit.

Patric Hornqvist (hand) was able to take contact in Monday's practice.

Hornqvist had previously practiced with Pittsburgh, but this was the first time he did so without wearing a no-contact jersey. "That was fun to actually have a real practice out there, did some line rushes and did the whole practice," Hornqvist said. "I’m one step closer, and that’s all I can tell you guys right now." There's a chance that he'll play on Wednesday, but that remains to be seen. The injury has cost him the Penguins' first three games so far.

Patric Hornqvist (hand) took part in Saturday's practice.

Hornqvist did wear a no-contact jersey though, so while this is a positive development, he likely still has some hurdles left before he can return. "It’s fun to be out there again with the boys," Hornqvist said. "We’re taking it step-by-step. It feels better every time I step on the ice. We’re getting closer every time I go on the ice. Hopefully pretty soon I can play." He had 21 goals and 44 points in 70 contests last season.

Although he won't play Saturday night against the Predators, Patric Hornqivst is making good progress in his recovery from a hand injury.

He was on the ice Saturday morning and was seen taking shots with both hands on his stick with "authority," according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Jason Mackey. It seems like Hornqvist could be available to return soon rather than later.

Patric Hornqvist (hand) will likely miss the start of the regular season.

"We'd like to get him into some practices before we throw him into the game situation, and at this point, it's not probable that that's going to happen before game one," coach Mike Sullivan said. Hornqvist has been skating on his own before practices, but has not taken part in a session with the team during the preseason. It doesn't sound like he will play Wednesday or Thursday and could be on injured reserve for the beginning of the year.
Oct 2 - 6:27 PM

Patric Hornqvist (hand) has been skating, but hasn't participated in a practice yet.

The hope is still that Hornqvist will be available for the season opener despite his lack of practice time. That being said, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan also said that they would be cautious with the veteran forward, so we'll see what happens. Hornqvist had 21 goals and 44 points in 70 games last season.

Pittsburgh GM Jim Rutherford expects to have Hornqvist back on the ice before the start of the season. It was reported that he had a broken finger when he scored the Cup-winning goal back in June.

Patric Hornqvist had a broken finger when he scored the game-winning goal in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

It was widely believed that Hornqvist was playing hurt in Pittsburgh's series against Nashville. He only played in one game during the Eastern Conference Final because of an "upper-body injury," but he returned to play against his former team in the Stanley Cup Final. Hornqvist scored with just 95 seconds left in regulation to give the Penguins back-to-back championships.

Carl Hagelin potted an empty netter shortly afterwards to grant the Penguins a 2-0 win in Game 6 and a 4-2 series win over the underdog Predators.

Jun 7 - 12:46 PM

Patric Hornqvist hasn't picked up a point through two games in the Stanley Cup Final.

Hornqvist missed the last six games of Pittsburgh's third-round series against the Ottawa Senators, but he managed to return to the lineup for Game 1 against the Preds. He's probably still feeling the effects of the upper-body injury he was dealing with in the previous round, so it's not surprising to see his production drop off. Hornqvist has played 13:14 and 11:31 in the first two games of the series.
