Not long after the Florida Panthers lost 3-0 to the Blackhawks on Thursday night, Joel Quenneville had some good news when it came to injured forward Patric Hornqvist.
Well, at least the news he had was not bad.
Quenneville said he would categorize Hornqvist’s injury as “day-to-day” and when pressed whether the team’s medical staff felt it was serious, he said “we think he’s alright.”
If Hornqvist is not seriously hurt or out for an extended period of time following an open-ice hit from defenseman Nikita Zadorov, that is extremely good news for the Panthers.
Although Hornqvist is relatively new to the Panthers, it is hard to imagine what this team would look like with out him.
