Patric Hornqvist has been taken off the Pittsburgh Penguins' top line.

Hornqvist instead skated on the third line with Beau Bennett and Nick Bonino on Monday. Hornqvist has struggled this season with four goals and eight points in 23 games and being removed from the top-six forward group probably won't do him any favors. That being said, this might prove to be a temporary arrangement.
