Marian Hossa will not play in 2017-18 because of side effects from medication to treat a skin disorder.
It was reported on Tuesday that Hossa may be forced to retire due to the issue. "Over the course of the last few years, under the supervision of the Blackhawks medical staff, I have been privately undergoing treatment for a progressive skin disorder and the side effects of the medications involved to treat the disorder," Hossa said in a statement. "Due to the severe side effects associated with those medications, playing hockey is not possible for me during the upcoming 2017-18 season. While I am disappointed that I will not be able to play, I have to consider the severity of my condition and how the treatments have impacted my life both on and off the ice." He also added that he wouldn't be commenting further on his health. Team physician Dr. Michael Terry said that the skin disorder "is becoming more and more difficult to treat and control with conventional medications while [Hossa] plays hockey," so it was a joint decision for him not to play.

Marian Hossa may decide to retire from the NHL, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Hossa was still relatively productive last season, as he scored 26 goals and 45 points in 73 games with the Blackhawks. Unfortunately for the veteran, he's allergic to the equipment he wears. Friedman mentioned that the medication used to treat the allergy is so strong that doctors wanted Hossa to have his blood tested every few weeks. If the 38-year-old is forced to hang up his skates because of the allergy, it would be a sad way to see him go. Hossa's consistently been one of the best players in the world over the last 15 years.
