Hornqvist is being evaluated for a concussion, Shelly Anderson of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hornqvist was set to take a baseline test Friday which would have determined whether or not he was experiencing concussion-like symptoms, but the results of that test aren't yet known. The team won't have a good estimate for his return date until his situation is properly diagnosed, but the odds seem against him suiting up Saturday against Ottawa.

Hornqvist wasn't on the bench or ice for the start of the third period Thursday against the Canucks, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Hornqvist's injury is likely the result of a big hit laid on him by Ryan Stanton late in the third period. The team will likely update his status at some point in the near future, but the team will need to shift lines to fill in while he is out.

Hornqvist scored his seventh goal in eight career games against Carolina on Friday.

The former Nashville forward was reunited on a line with Sidney Crosby several games ago. Since then, the two have shown the same good chemistry they displayed as a pairing earlier in 2014-15. Hornqvist registered five shots on goal Friday (a good sign) for just the second time in his last 13 games. He'll look to add onto his 25-point total Saturday night in a rematch between the two teams.

Hornqvist temporarily shifted to Pittsburgh's second line with Evgeni Malkin on Tuesday against the Rangers.

Coach Mike Johnston mixed and matched lines in the blowout loss. Hornqvist better be careful that Johnston doesn't put Pascal Dupuis back with his old linemates, Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz, as the Swede has exceeded all expectations as a member of the team's top line. Hornqvist was initially penciled in to skate with Malkin prior to the start of the season, so the situation bears watching -- Hornqvist's spot on the No. 1 power-play unit remains secure.
