#Blackhawks F Marian Hossa ‘on target’ to return after next week
Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville was upbeat about Marian Hossa’s recovery from an upper-body injury and said Hossa could return to the ice next week and play the following week.
Hossa suffered the injury in last Saturday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Soldier Field. He was expected to miss 2-3 weeks.
‘‘He’s on target,’’ Quenneville said Saturday after the Blackhawks practiced at Johnny’s West in preparation for Sunday night’s game against the Sabres in Buffalo. ‘‘He looks good. He’s working hard in the gym. 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].’’
