Details about Patric Hornqvist's latest injury are crystalizing.
Head coach Mike Sullivan said Tuesday that Hornqvist would be out "longer term" with what he deemed a lower-body ailment after falling in practice Monday.
The 32-year-old has contributed 11 points in 20 games in 2019-20. He missed seven contests in November with a separate ailment.
Pittsburgh has been ravaged by injuries this season. Sidney Crosby, Justin Schultz, and Brian Dumoulin are among the Penguins players currently on the shelf, while Evgeni Malkin was forced to miss 11 games earlier in the campaign, and Kris Letang returned to action last Wednesday after sitting out eight contests.
