Patric Hornqvist is thrilled to be a Florida Panther.
While Hornqvist felt blindsided by the Penguins trading him, he gave permission to waive his no-trade contract. "I think they have a really good [core] of young players who are on the way up," Hornqvist said during a Zoom teleconference on Friday afternoon. "What I can bring to the team is leadership, experience, and some playoff hockey, obviously. I think the fit is perfect for me and my family. We're super excited to go down to Florida and help the team to win. It was an easy choice for me and my family. I'm super excited to go down there and help them win some games… You don't think this question is going to come up. When it came up, I took my time to go through every scenario." Look for Hornqvist to get 20-25 goals as a top-nine forward and play on the power play. Sep 26 8:33 am (EST)
