(CBS) Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa is expected to miss two to three weeks with an upper body injury that he suffered in Saturday night’s victory against the Penguins at Soldier Field, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Hossa get hurt in the first period when he took a check into the boards from Penguins forward Craig Adams. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said it’s likely that Brandon Saad will move to Hossa’s spot at right wing on the first line. From there, Andrew Shaw will likely move to right wing on the third line and Peter Regin will center the third line in Hossa’s absence, according to the Tribune.
