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.

Patric Hornqvist received a maintenance day off Friday.

The forward has been a big banged up this week so giving him the day to rest can only help. Hornqvist has only four goals and seven points this season so he could be ready to break out. Matt Cullen also sat out practice and both are expected to play on Saturday.

Patric Hornqvist will indeed play in Tuesday's tilt against Minnesota.

There had been some concern that Hornqvist would miss the game, but he's in the starting lineup on the top line with Sidney Crosby instead. Through 17 games this season, the veteran winger has four goals and six points with 44 hits and 45 shots on net. His current 8.9 shooting percentage is but 0.2 points below his career average.

Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed) participated fully in Tuesday's morning skate.

He said he felt good after the session, but the Penguins wouldn't confirm if he would be in the lineup Tuesday night. Coach Mike Johnston still had to speak with the trainers to make sure Hornqvist had the green light, but he thought the 28-year-old winger looked ready to go.

Patric Hornqvist scored a strange goal to cap off Saturday's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs.

Perhaps in a definitive moment of Jonathan Bernier's mindset, Hornqvist was able to tap one past the unfocused and listless netminder off a dump-in for just his second goal of the season. Hey, it looks like a rip in the books at least. Hornqivst played 15:49 including 4:10 on the power play with three shots on goal.

Patric Hornqvist had a goal and an assist in Pittsburgh's 4-3 victory over Buffalo on Thursday.

Going into Thursday's contest, Hornqvist had just one point in nine games this season. Pittsburgh as a whole had gotten off to a sluggish start offensively, but now that it seems to be warming up, Hornqvist should follow suit.

Patric Hornqvist was dealing with a broken rib.

Despite that, Hornqvist had two goals and three points in five playoff games. He also logged 20:54 minutes of ice time in the Penguins' final contest against the New York Rangers. He will presumably be fine for the start of the 2015-16 campaign.

Patric Hornqvist was only Pittsburgh player to score in the Penguins' 2-1 overtime loss to the visiting New York Rangers Wednesday night.

The loss means Hornqvist, Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Pens are on the brink of elimination. They trail the Rangers 3-1 in the best-of-seven, first-round series, with Game 5 in New York Friday night. Hornqvist's goal gave the Pens a 1-0 lead early Wednesday. The right winger scored his second goal of the postseason at 2:22 of the first period but the star-studded Pittsburgh lineup couldn't get the puck past Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist after that. Pittsburgh gained its first 1-0 lead of the series when Hornqvist deflected defenseman Ben Lovejoy's shot from the point past Lundqvist. Crosby chipped the puck up to the point from the slot to defenseman Paul Martin, who shoveled it over to Lovejoy for the shot from the right point. Lovejoy and Martin were credited with the assists.
