Patric Hornqvist (lower body) should be able to resume skating next week.

More bad health-related news for the battered Pittsburgh Penguins: Patric Hornqvist is expected to miss a "few weeks" with a lower-body injury.

The 27-year-old has already dealt with a concussion in 2014-15, his first season with the Penguins. When healthy, Hornqvist has been a revelation, generating 13 goals and 29 points in 33 games. Here's hoping he can enjoy better health once 2015 rolls around.

Patric Hornqvist suffered an injury to his foot/ankle after getting hit by a teammate’s shot.

Just what the Penguins need: more injuries. Hornqvist had three shots on goal in 6:26. Scott Harrington’s shot struck him in the ankle/foot area, and he returned briefly but ultimately left for the dressing room. Hornqvist has excelled in his first season with the Penguins, tallying 13 goals and 29 points. The hope here is that it’s nothing but a bruise.

Penguins coach Mike Johnston thinks Patric Hornqvist (upper body) will return Friday night.

Hornqvist missed two contests due to the ailment. Friday's morning skate was optional and some key players consequently skipped it, so it's hard to say what the lines will be. However, Hornqvist's return might correspond with Steve Downie's demotion to the third line.

There is still no word out of Pittsburgh as to whether or not Patric Hornqvist suffered a concussion on Thursday.

Hornqvist missed Saturday's game as all the results are not in. "We haven’t gotten anything final on that, so he’s still being evaluated," coach Mike Johnston said. "We’ll give him another day and just sort of see where he’s at." Hornqvist had a helmet-to-helmet hit with the Canucks Ryan Stanton. He has 11 goals and 25 points in 25 games and is off to the best start in his NHL career. Consider Hornqvist day-to-day for now.

Hornqvist has been off to a fantastic start, but his net-crashing style often comes at the price of at least a few games missed each season. Hopefully this isn't a long-lasting issue for the winger.
