Florida Panthers

NHL CapHit: $5,300,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Panthers have acquired Patric Hornqvist from the Penguins in exchange for Mike Matheson and Colton Sceviour.

Hornqvist has three years left on his current deal that pays him $5.3M AAV. At 33-years-old, Hornqvist isn't as effective as he once was and injuries have become a major issue for the wing. Over his last four seasons in Pittsburgh, Hornqvist has missed 54 of the 315 games (17.1%) but was sixth on the team in points-per-game, registering 162 points (85G / 77A) in 261 games. In Florida, he will likely slot-in one the first or second line and on the top power-play.

Hornqvist (concussion) returned to practice on Friday.

Hornqvist has missed the last three games with a concussion but skated in a non-contact jersey on Friday. Hornqvist hasn’t been cleared for contact yet, which suggests he will miss his fourth consecutive game on Saturday. However, his return to the ice is a step in the right direction and the Penguins could get him back sometime next week.
