Hornqvist suffered an unspecified injury in the Penguins 5-1 loss to the Red Wings on Sunday. He dropped his stick and appeared to be in visible pain while leaving the ice, but he didn’t even appear to take any contact prior to dropping his lumber. Hornqvist is expected to miss all three games this week.
Hornqvist (lower-body) will return to the Penguins lineup on Tuesday.
Hornqvist missed the last 11 games with a lower-body injury, but will be back in the lineup tonight vs. the Jets. He has recorded 29 points (13G / 16A) in 33 games this season. He will skate on the top-line tonight, but neither Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin are available to centre that line.
Hornqvist (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Hornqvist, who just returned to the ice on Monday, apparently could be available tonight vs. the Jets. He took part in the morning skate and skated on a line with Beau Bennett and Brandon Sutter, which is a good sign that he could play tonight. Monitor his status during pre-game warmups at 6:30PM ET.
Hornqvist (lower-body) could resume skating on Monday.
Hornqvist has been sidelined since December 27th with a lower-body injury. The Penguins have not provided many updates on Hornqvist, but he is expected to resume skating on Monday. He will likely need to skate for 7-10 days before he returns to the lineup.
Hornqvist has missed the last two games with a head injury, but should be back in the lineup tonight according to coach Johnston. Hornqvist was in the morning skate so all signs point towards him returning to the lineup tonight vs. the Flames. He has 11 goals and 14 assists (25 points) in 25 games this season.
Hornqvist plans to practice on Thursday and if all goes well, he could return to the lineup on Friday vs. the Flames. This news suggests that Hornqvist avoided a concussion, which is great news for the Penguins.
