It will be interesting to see if he cracks the lineup

- Reports out of Nashville suggest that Swedish winger Patric Hornqvist will be joining the Nashville Predators in 2009. The Preds chose Hornqvist 230th overall in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Hornqvist is described as a crafty winger, who makes up for a lack of speed with a keen nose for the net. His skills were certainly on display in Sweden's 6-5 win over upstart Belarus on Saturday, during which he netted two goals.
He's coming this season, and is expected to challenge for a roster spot. I doubt he makes the roster in anything other than a top six role (the Preds have plenty of 3rd/4th line forwards). Don't be surprised if he starts the season in Milwaukee though (like Radulov did in '06-'07).
