Hornqvist (upper-body) left Thursday’s game and did not return.
Hornqvist left last night’s game after a helmet-to-helmet hit from Canucks’ defenseman Ryan Stanton.

Hornqvist has 22 goals and 31 assists (53 points) in 76 games last year. 2013-14 was a career year for the 27 year-old winger who will see his fantasy value rise heading into this year. He has never played with a centre like Evgeni Malkin or Sidney Crosby, but that is about to change. Hornqvist should be around 30 goals and 30 assists with his new team.
