NHL PLAYER, Patric Hornqvist

BIOGRAPHY

Born Jan 01, 1987 -- Sollentuna, Sweden
Selected by Nashville Predators round 7 #230 overall 2005 NHL Entry Draft

Patric Gösta Hörnqvist (born January 1, 1987) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the National Hockey League.

He began playing hockey in local Sollentuna-club Gillbo IF and also played minor hockey in Solna SK. He became the Elitserien Rookie of the Year in 2007 after a successful second season in Djurgården's regular team, scoring 23 goals and 34 points. Hörnqvist signed on a three-year contract with Nashville in May 2007 but had already chosen to stay for another season in Djurgården during the previous month. He played another good season scoring 18 goals and 30 points in 53 games; and participated in his first Elitserien playoff when Djurgården met Linköpings HC in the quarterfinals. These games did not go well for Hörnqvist; he recorded only one assist, and his team lost the series 4–1.

Hörnqvist moved to North America for the 2008–09 NHL season in hopes of making the Predators' roster. However, he struggled and was assigned to their minor league affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL), where he spent most of the year. He scored his first NHL goal on October 15, 2008 against Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars, in one of his 28 NHL games that year. Hörnqvist broke out in the 2009–10 NHL season, leading the Predators in goals (30) and tying for the team lead in points with 51.
