Patric Hornqvist (upper body) will be a game-time decision Monday night.

Patric Hornqvist was injured in the third period Saturday and did not return.

Hornqvist took a puck to his head and immediately left the ice. There was no update after the game so consider the winger day-to-day for now. Hornqvist has 11 goals and 20 points in 28 games with six goals and 10 points coming on the power play. "It’s scary," said Brian Dumoulin, who was on the ice at the time of the injury. "That was a hard pass up the middle. Those deflections, they’re tough to react to. Hopefully he’s OK, and everything’s fine. I haven’t spoken to him yet. It’s scary. I just wish the best for him."

Hornqvist then added a goal of his own on the power play early in the third period to tie the game at three. The Penguins forward has 11 goals and 20 points in 26 games this season.

Patric Hornqvist had a goal and an assist Saturday in the Penguins 5-1 win over Buffalo.

Hornqvist is flourishing on a line with Sidney Crosby and is up to 10 goals and 18 points in 25 games. "He's such a terrific teammate," coach Mike Sullivan said of Hornqvist. "He's just all about the Penguins. He just wants to win in the worst way. He wears his emotions on his sleeve. Sometimes that's good. Sometimes it's not so good. What we love about him is his care and his passion for the game and his passion for the team. He's a brave kid. He'll take a cross check in the front on the power play and take the goalie's sight lines away so other guys might get an opportunity, and he's happy to do it." He is worth a pickup if available in your pool.

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.

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.
