Marian Hossa began the regular season on a line with Jonathan Toews and Richard Panik.

He registered an assist on Panik's first-period marker and posted three shots in a 5-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues. Hossa wants to bounce back in 2016-17 after a disappointing 2015-16 campaign and he got off to a decent start on Wednesday.

Marian Hossa might have a different role in 2016-17.

The veteran has been a top-six forward for his entire career, but he was skating on the third line during Friday's practice. "I talked to (head coach Joel Quenneville) about it, he wants to balance the lines. I’ll go wherever I can help the team," Hossa said. "I finished the season with the third line and we play so much ice time, as long as you’re playing you’re OK with it." The 37-year-old saw his production dip significantly last season, so the 'Hawks may just want to reduce his ice time to keep him fresh for a potential post-season run. Hossa had 13 goals and 33 points in 64 games during the 2015-16 season.

Marian Hossa envisions himself playing into his 40s.

He will be 42 years of age when his current contract expires. However, he could call it a career if things don't work out the way he hopes. "I go year-by-year right now and I try to not focus on five years," Hossa said. "At this point you never know what can happen. You know, too many injuries or these things can slow you down. Or anything can change. But right now I feel pretty good so I try to go for it."

Marian Hossa scored in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey.

Although both teams had qualified for the semi-final, this was still an important game because first place in the group was on the line. Even though Team Europe came into this game with a 2-0-0 record, the end result was hardly surprising. Canada jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Hossa cut the deficit in half, but that's as close as Europe would come to tying the game. Team Europe will now take on Team Sweden in the semi-finals.

Marian Hossa is apparently "good to go" after an injury scare on Thursday night.

This is great news for Team Europe and for the Chicago Blackhawks after was hurt during a pre-tournament game for the World Cup of Hockey. "He's fine," said coach Ralph Krueger. "He had a lower-body setback that was minor and he'll be okay to go tomorrow in practice. He looks good to go, all green lights. It was a safety precaution to pull him out in the third. It turned out to be a light injury that's fine today. No setbacks there."

Marian Hossa is reportedly OK after he was taken to a local hospital for X-Rays on Thursday night.

Sep 9 - 9:18 AM

Marian Hossa is upbeat about 2016-17 after a rough campaign.

Hossa was limited to 13 goals and 33 points in 64 contests in 2015-16. That left him one goal shy of the 500 milestone. "I was pretty close to having more than 13 goals last year with so many chances but the puck didn't want to go in," Hossa said. "I definitely feel like I have more than 13 (in me). But I don't want to put too many thoughts in my head offensively. I'll just play my game and I know good things will happen." At the age of 37, the question is whether or not he has a comeback year left in him. He's not a bad late round gamble in drafts next season, but he's just that: A gamble.

Apr 20 - 11:38 AM

Chicago's top line of Marian Hossa, Jonathan Toews and Andrew Ladd have produced a lot of chances, but not many points.

"I felt like we had good chances," Hossa said. "Obviously we didn’t capitalize on them because the game is extremely tight. They’re playing well defensively. Give them lots of credit. It’s really bottled up there to find the chances. But I thought we had some good looks and that’s a good sign." Unfortunately for the trio, they've only produced one assist between them. The Blackhawks need their top line to produce more if they hope to knock out the Blues.
