The intensity level for Patric Hornqvist is extreme.
The first time Tom Kuhnhackl was in the Pittsburgh dressing room, he heard a scream in Swedish and was actually scared. It came from Hornqvist who was revving himself up for the game. Hornqvist loves to yell at opposing players and officials on the bench and coach Mike Sullivan has to tell him to calm down five or six times per game. "I don’t ever want him to change," Sullivan said of Hornqvist. "That’s what makes him what he is. That’s what makes him the personality that helps this team become a more competitive team. I think that energy is contagious. I think his teammates get a kick out of it. I know his coaches do." He has two goals and an assist in five games thus far and is playing alongside Sidney Crosby at this time. Apr 24 - 10:14 AM
