Hornqvist did not practice on Monday after sustaining an undisclosed injury against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. No update to his status was provided on Monday, but Hornqvist was one of the first forwards on the ice for Pittsburgh’s Tuesday morning skate.
“I’m feeling good,” Hornqvist said. “Obviously, it’s up to the coach to see what kind of lineup they have going, but I feel comfortable out there.”
Penguins coach Mike Johnston said he thought Hornqvist performed well during the morning skate and seems healthy, but he will speak with the team trainers before deciding if Hornqvist will play.
