I just got word today that Preds prospect center Patric Hornqvist will play his first full professional season in the Elitserien, rather than in the NHL or AHL.
I'm not surprised, but I am a bit disappointed. I really think Patric's stock peaked this year and THIS was the year he needed to come over.
Then again, he may be like Nicklas Bacstrom and use the year to fully develop as a player, rather than doing it in the AHL.
But it also means that if the Predators move, I won't have the chance to see the next Peter Forsberg... c'est la vie, I guess.
