Medicine Hat News - - SPORTS -

Pa­tric Horn­qvist’s grit helped the Pitts­burgh Pen­guins win a pair of Stan­ley Cups. To keep their cham­pi­onship win­dow opened, they de­cided it was time to move on with­out him.

The Pen­guins traded the 33-year-old for­ward to Florida on Thurs­day in ex­change for Mike Mathe­son and for­ward Colton Sce­viour.

Horn­qvist spent six sea­sons in Pitts­burgh af­ter be­ing ac­quired in a 2014 trade that sent James Neal to Nashville. Known for his hard­nosed play around the net, Horn­qvist scored 132 goals in 407 games for the Pen­guins and added 22 more in the play­offs, in­clud­ing 14 dur­ing Pitts­burgh’s run to con­sec­u­tive Stan­ley Cups in 2016 and 2017.
