Injuries limited Hornqvist to four goals and 10 assists in 24 games this season, but the 26-year-old has been one of the team's best offensive players when healthy. In a Tuesday release announcing the move, Predators general manager David Poile said Hornqvist ``has become - and will remain - an integral member of our core group.''
Hornqvist scored 30 goals in 2009-10 to become the fourth player in franchise history to reach that benchmark. He had 21 goals in 2010-11 and provided a team-high 27 goals in 2011-12. He ranks eighth on the franchise's all-time list in power-play goals (28) and is 10th in overall goals (84).
