Penguins sign Patric Hornqvist to 5-year contract extension

Penguins sign Patric Hornqvist to 5-year contract extension”

Hornqvist was set to become a free agent after this season.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are close to extending forward Patric Hornqvist, general manager Jim Rutherford said Monday. The deal, announced Tuesday, has an average annual value $5.3 million and runs through the 2022-23 season. "We always have a chance to win and we have a great core group in here, so that was obviously the key situation for me, too". He's also been a significant postseason contributor for the Penguins, totaling 13 points (nine goals, four assists) in the 2016 playoffs and netting the Stanley Cup-clinching goal in Game 6 against his former team, the Predators, last season. He brings a dimension to our dressing room that's unique.

The Penguins now have Hornqvist, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel, Kris Letang, Brian Dumoulin and Olli Maatta all under contract through at least 2021-22.

In 51 games this season, the five-foot-11 Swede has 17 goals and 32 points.

Now third in the Metropolitan Division, the Penguins are hoping this move puts them over the top. "Just have to go out here and prove it".
