While the recognition he does get usually is for his offensive contributions — he reached the 30-goal plateau for the eighth time in his career — it’s Marian Hossa's work without the puck that makes him such an elite player, even at 35.
Hossa led the league in takeaways for much of the season, but missing 10 games with injuries and family matters dropped him to fifth overall. But in 72 games, he had 75 takeaways — the highest average per game among league leaders. There’s no question Hossa is one of the best — if not the best — two-way players in the world. But he won't likely win the Frank J. Selke Trophy, awarded annually to the league’s top defensive forward, because it traditionally goes to a center. Hossa is a right winger. The likely Selke winner this year will be Boston's Patrice Bergeron. "It seems like only the centers get mentioned a lot," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "But Hossa, two-way, is as good as any player in the league. Start getting him in that category. You have my support." Apr 15 - 9:58 AM

Marian Hossa scored his 30th goal of the season on Saturday.

Hossa netted the goal midway through the first period and only logged 4:30 minutes as a result. "I said, 'Well, if you do score early I'm going to pull you,'" Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville explained. "And that's what happened." It was the Blackhawks' last game of the season and their playoff position had already been decided, so making sure none of their top players got injured was their main concern.

Marian Hossa potted the game-tying goal with 47.7 seconds remaining in the third period in Wednesday's overtime win over Montreal.

He is one goal away from 30 on the season with two games left to play. Hossa also assisted on Patrick Sharp's winning tally in the extra session to give him 59 points in 70 games.

Despite skipping Sunday's morning skate, it appears that Marian Hossa is good to go for the Chicago Blackhawks' match against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Teuvo Teravainen is also in action for Chicago today. Hossa has two goals in his last three games and seems suited to help fantasy owners who may very well depend on a few shots and goals here and there to win weekly playoff series (if applicable).
Mar 30 - 12:50 PM

Chicago forward Marian Hossa, who missed the past five games with an upper-body injury, returned in brilliant fashion Sunday night, producing three points in the Blackhawks' 4-1 victory over the visiting Detroit Red Wings.

Hossa scored his 25th goal of the season and added two assists. He also tied for team-highs with a plus-2 and three shots on goal. Hossa assisted on goals by Nick Leddy (his seventh of the season) and Jonathan Toews (27th). Hossa now has 28 assists on the season. Also potting a goal for Chicago Sunday was Ben Smith (ninth). Smith also contributed an assist, while Duncan Keith chipped in with two assists.

The Chicago Blackhawks will get Marian Hossa back on Sunday as they host the Detroit Red Wings.

No doubt about it, you should adjust your lineup(s) accordingly, as the two-way winger remains effective with 50 points in 57 games played and nice peripherals this season.
Mar 16 - 5:49 PM

Marian Hossa (upper body) is likely to return to the Blackhawks lineup Sunday against the Red Wings.

Hossa, who has 24 goals and 50 points in 57 games this season, has missed the past five games. He fully participated in Saturday's practice and felt fine. "Most likely, yes," he said. "Today was a good practice, good drills. It was a great test for me and I felt pretty good."
Mar 15 - 8:11 PM

Marian Hossa had a strong practice Friday and could play Sunday against the Red Wings.

He has been out of action for the Blackhawks' last five games but appears on the verge of a return. Check back with us close to Sunday's 7:30 EST time start for updates as to whether Hossa will dress. If he isn't ready for Sunday then he hopes to play Tuesday versus Philadelphia.
Mar 15 - 11:55 AM

Marian Hossa (upper body) will not be available on Friday.

It will be Hossa's fifth straight game on the sidelines. He's hoping to return on Sunday or Tuesday.
Mar 14 - 12:41 PM

Marian Hossa might be ready to return from his upper-body injury this weekend.

If he doesn't return by then, next week could be a very good possibility. "Hoss is doing much better," coach Joel Quenneville said. "I think he's going to get on the ice [Wednesday] while we're gone. It's going to be on his own here. We'll get a better idea when we get him together with our team, but I don't think he's too far away." He won't play Wednesday night and that will mark his fourth straight absence from the Blackhawks' lineup.
Mar 12 - 9:54 AM

Marian Hossa (upper body) is projected to resume skating next week and return to playing the week after.

"He's on target. He looks good. He's working hard in the gym," said coach Joel Quenneville. "I think at some point this week he'll be on the ice. Hopefully he'll be playing before we know it. I don't think it's going to be shorter than two [weeks]." Hossa suffered an upper-body injury last Saturday against Pittsburgh and his initial timetable was set for two-to-three weeks.
Mar 8 - 3:01 PM

Marian Hossa will be out of action for two to three weeks because of an upper-body injury.

He was hurt during Saturday's outdoor game against Pittsburgh on a hit by Craig Adams along the boards. The Blackhawks haven't called anyone up from the minors yet to replace him, but that remains a possibility. Brandon Saad will continue to play with Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp in Hossa's place.
Mar 3 - 12:57 PM

Marian Hossa won't return to Saturday's game because of an upper-body injury.

Hossa took a hard hit in the first period against the Penguins. He played 5:06 before departing. Hossa has 24 goals and 50 points this season.
Mar 1 - 9:27 PM

Marian Hossa joined his teammates for practice on Tuesday.

"So far, I feel good; I felt normal," said Hossa, who represented Slovakia at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. "The time change is good now. I've been here a few days. It's nice to get back and get ready for the rest of the season." He is enjoying a superb season, but coach Joel Quenneville still plans to monitor the veteran winger's ice time in practices and morning skates. The Chicago bench boss wants to take the same approach with his nine other Olympians and give them "maintenance days" when they are needed.
Feb 26 - 8:28 AM

Marian Hossa scored twice in Slovakia's 5-3 loss against the Czech Republic.

Hossa was given a daunting task after it became apparent that Marian Gaborik wouldn't be available for the Olympics due to an injury. That left Hossa as the team's only elite forward, but he only managed to record an assist in the 2014 Olympics before this contest. Tomas Surovy scored the team's other goal against the Czech Republic. Michal Handzus and Andrej Sekera each recorded two assists in the losing effort. Slovakia has been eliminated from the tournament.
