Patric Hornqvist is still on track to make the Predators without playing a minute of North American hockey.
The 21-year-old winger, who has played in the Swedish Elite League the past two seasons scoring 41 goals in 102 games, has impressed the Preds' brass and is posied to grab a roster spot. Hornqvist may toil on Nashville's third line so keep your expectations of him in check. Winger Ryan Jones, another rookie without any AHL experience, may also snatch a roster spot.
