Paying Patric Hornqvist

from Jonathan Bombulie of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Patric Hornqvist will make at least $6 million per season on his next contract.

Count on it: Hornqvist is one of the most consistent goal scorers in the league, playing the type of hard-nosed, straight-ahead game that doesn't fluctuate much from year to year. He's one of only 24 players to score at least 20 goals in each of the past four seasons, and that's a list that is populated with some of the game's brightest stars.

Plenty of players with similar if not somewhat inferior numbers have received $6 million or more in recent negotiations, from Patrick Marleau and Alexander Radulov at $6.25 million to Milan Lucic and Loui Eriksson at $6 million....

The most likely scenario is Hornqvist gets between $6 and $7 million on the open market and the Penguins hope Zach Aston-Reese or Daniel Sprong is ready for full-time top-six duty a year from now.

Update On Injuries To Evgeni Malkin And Patric Hornqvist

via Katie Strang of ESPN,

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin is expected to miss one to two weeks with a lower-body injury suffered in the first period of Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins.

Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford provided the injury update following the break of small group meetings at Day 1 of the NHL general managers meetings Monday in Boca Raton.

Malkin has 28 goals and 40 assists in 63 games this season.

Rutherford also said that Patric Hornqvist, injured in Sunday's 5-1 loss against the Detroit Red Wings, will miss approximately one week.

The Penguins have dropped two straight games, but Rutherford expressed confidence in his team.

"As long as we get healthy, I feel good about our team," Rutherford said.

Patric Hornqvist Out Several Weeks After Taking A Puck To His Leg

from Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

The Penguins will be without forward Patric Hornqvist for “several weeks” because of a lower-body injury he sustained during the first period of Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Capitals at Consol Energy Center.

Hornqvist absorbed a shot from Penguins defenseman Scott Harrington with the lower part of his leg late in the period and limped to the bench, where he could be seen in obvious pain. He returned briefly but didn't come out on the ice after the first intermission.

This will be the second absence this season for Hornqvist, who also missed two games because of a concussion.

Defenseman Kris Letang, who missed the final two minutes of Saturday's game, has a bruised foot and was held out of practice as a precaution, coach Mike Johnston said.

Video- Patric Hornqvist Head-On-Head Collision

via the Penguins' website,

The Pens lost top-six winger Patric Hornqvist in the second period after he was stood up in the neutral zone by defenseman Ryan Stanton. Hornqvist headed straight to the locker room after the hit and did not return. After the game, head coach Mike Johnston said he didn’t have a chance to talk to the trainers and had no update on Hornqvist.

“Hopefully he’s ok,” Sidney Crosby said. “If he’s out, then we all got to step up and find a way. I don’t think there’s anyone here who’s going to feel sorry for us. Other teams aren’t, so we just got to find a way to get through it.”

Nashville Re-Signs Hornqvist

Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed forward Patric Hornqvist to a five-year, $21.25 million contract.

“As we build towards the 2013-14 season and beyond, re-signing Patric Hornqvist was an off-season priority,” Poile said. “Since joining the Predators, he has become—and will remain—an integral member of our core group. Patric is everything we talk about as a Predator—he is relentless in going to the net and willing to pay the price to score goals, has a terrific work ethic and is a quality person who is respected on and off the ice. Patric is just entering the prime of his career. He has led our team in goal-scoring in two of the last four seasons and we are looking forward to him being a significant part of the Predators’ on-ice success in the years to come.”

Hornqvist Out With Leg Injury

from Dirk Hoag of On The Forecheck, 

First, Hornqvist took a Shea Weber shot off his right thigh, which left him hobbling off to the bench for repairs. Signs were hopeful at that time, as he made it back out for another shift, but a Ducks player then fell into Hornqvist's left leg in the corner of the Anaheim zone, causing that knee to buckle at an unnatural angle.

From there, Hornqvist had to be helped off the ice, and didn't return.

Preds Say Hornqvist Should Be Ready For The Playoffs

via Scott Burnside of ESPN,

The Nashville Predators’ top goal-scorer, Patric Hornqvist, doesn’t appear to be seriously injured after taking a slap shot from teammate Shea Weber in Wednesday’s 5-2 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.

Hornqvist, who has 30 goals, played just 7:29 and did not return to the game. It was initially feared he could be lost long-term, but Nashville officials reported late Thursday that Hornqvist will be kept out of the Predators’ final regular-season game Saturday against the St. Louis Blues as a precautionary measure. He should be ready when the playoffs begin next Wednesday.

Patric Hornqvist- From Last Pick To Top Scorer

from Mark Zwolinksi of the Toronto Star,

Being the absolute last selection has now become a badge of honour for the 22-year-old, but not one he uses as inspiration to prove the 29 other teams wrong.

“No, I wasn’t discouraged at all, I just said to myself keep working at it, and never lose your dream to play in the NHL,” said (Patric) Hornqvist.

Hornqvist paid his dues, coming over to North America and spending time in the AHL.

With his goal last Friday in a 1-0 win over Calgary, he now has six goals in his last six games. Since Dec. 14 he has 13 goals and six assists in 16 games – the most in the league since that date.

Overall, the Predators are obviously happy with his success, but they also point to the fact the organization prides itself on bringing players up when they are ready, and not simply to search for lightning in a bottle.
