Hornqvist returns to Predators' lineup
Hornqvist returns to Predators’ lineup
Facing elimination Monday night, the Nashville Predators had leading goal-scorer Patric Hornqvist back in their lineup for Game 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Hornqvist, a 30-goal scorer during the regular season, played in Game 1 and had been out ever since with an upper-body injury. His return could particularly help the Nashville power play, which hasn’t managed a goal yet in this series. Hornqvist had 10 power-play goals this season.

Dustin Boyd came out of the lineup to make room for Hornqvist.
Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
