Marian Hossa Might Be Hurt Again
Marian Hossas up-and-down season continued on Monday, as it appears that he might have suffered yet another injury setback.
The 34-year-old left for the locker room after Colorado Avalanche defenseman Ryan OByrne hit him along the boards in the first period. Those who worried about concussion problems when his last upper-body injury cropped up will likely be unsettled by the scene, described by the Chicago Tribunes Chris Kuc.
OByrne, 28, isnt likely to be a popular guy in the mind of the Chicago Blackhawks. Kuc points out that he delivered the check that separated Patrick Sharps shoulder, too.
Hossa hasnt returned to the ice yet during the game. While any ailment isnt great news, theres some talk that he might have hurt his left arm or hand instead of suffering a head injury.
