Pittsburgh Penguins' Patric Hornqvist moves the puck up ice during their game against the Washington Capitals inside of PPG Paints Arena on May 1, 2018.

With Patric Hornqvist’s status for Saturday night’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets up in the air, the Pittsburgh Penguins recalled winger Garrett Wilson from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday afternoon.

Hornqvist took a hard hit into the boards from Boston’s Kevan Miller on Friday night. He did not play after the end of the second period of a 2-1 Penguins overtime loss.

After the game, coach Mike Sullivan said Hornqvist would be evaluated once the team returned to Pittsburgh.

Hornqvist has five goals and nine points in his last nine games.

Wilson, 27, was called up once before this season, going pointless in four games. He has six goals and 11 points in 12 AHL games.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
