Quenneville: Marian Hossa Likely To Miss 2 Weeks

On Monday, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville told the media that forward Marian Hossa is likely to miss approximately two weeks with a lower-body injury.

Hossa was injured in Saturday night’s loss to the Anaheim Ducks. According to Quenneville, Richard Panik will replace Hossa on the Hawks’ top line as Chicago hosts Panik’s former team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, on Monday. Sadly, Jeremy Morin was demoted over the weekend and won’t be available for the game.

Forward Vince Hinostroza, recalled on Sunday, was on the fourth line at the morning skate. Andrew Shaw suffered a cut and left practice for repairs; he was replaced on the top line by Jiri Sekac.

Erik Gustafsson will also miss Monday night’s game. Scott Darling will start in net for the Hawks.

  1. Whats up with Goosetafsson, flu. Like 14 with Tazer, see what chemistry/complimenting styles they have together.

  2. Big good news on Hoss. Blessing in disguise he gets an extra rest, like 27 did at key time in 2nd 40 games that yr. Was a better player after.

  3. has anybody noticed TT s regression of late. Playing very timid style and with little confidence. I don’t buy any bs that this is due to size. Kane, panarin, Shaw are all of similar size to TT yet the play bigger and have some bite to their game. TT has not scored in forever and I think it was an empty netter at that. Yes he is defensively responsible but I don’t think that he was drafted in the 1st round to be a 3 line defensive specialist.

  4. Panik plays with Toews (one of Babcock’s favorite players) and Morin get to play with the…..Marlies. Hmmmm, is there a message ?

    I do hope the Hawks use these 2 weeks to get some Hogs a little time in the NHL. Sending Mashinter down for a couple weeks wouldn’t hurt either.

  5. When Teravainen is playing RW, with Hoss and Kaner on team. He filled in for Tazer well that game. He (anyone like him style wise) is not ever going to play like Shawzer. Kaner has learned when to engage and when not to along boards/tuff areas. These high skilled guys know how use skill/IQ with stick in these areas. Theres only so many guys like Shawzer/Krugs/Danault when it comes to being 180 and going into those areas. 86 is fine. Nothing against 11 but you get some two way polayers on the 3rd line and there will be lots of goals.

  6. Im very curious to see how this team responds without Hossa. This is exactly when TT needs to step up. If Tuevo is going to be a top 6 forward now is the time, no excuses. Hoss shoulda be counted on as much they are now anyways.

  7. TT is an elite passer. Until he is put with finishers his offensive production will be limited. With Hossa out I would put TT on the first line for 2 weeks with 19 and 14.

  8. DEMO- TT is way smaller/weaker than 72…

    Panarin- is a BEAST… just saw some twitter photo of 72 doing some backbend/yoga type stretch with his shirt off… the dude looks like a UFC fighter… absolutely ripped with little muscles on big muscles… the guy has serious workout routine…

    I am BIG TT fan… but the “knock/rumor” on TT… doesn’t like/take the Off ice training as hard… I don’t know if it’s true… a lot of that stuff has to do with genetics… but Panarin is RIPPED!!!!

  9. Wall-thought Panarin seemed to shrug off bigger guys-he must be strong

    Dano’s bio ranges from 183 pounds (most sites) to 223, on the Rockford site (that’s 40 lbs difference) and saw one that said 214-What’s up?

  10. With Gusty’s play slipping a bit ( and not surprisingly for a young player/rookie), you would think Stan would be on the prowl for a #4 defenseman. Are the Hawks comfortable going into what a two month playoff grind and possibly 4 best of 7 series, with TVR in that position opposite Seabrook ?

    Or do they make a trade to get somebody, then play TVR and Rozy at 5 and 6 with Gusty, Svedberg( & dare I say Scuderi ) waiting in the wings ?

  11. re: Craig – I think the rumors the Hawks “need” a #4 dman are over exaggerated as always. Has Gustafsson been inconsistent? Sure. But if you’re honest with yourself, you know in your heart that the minute the playoff start Rozsival is skating 19 minutes a night w/ TvR getting 17-19 and a mix of Scuderi-Gustafsson getting #6 ice time based on matchups.

    This is quickly becoming a hot trade market, but one thing the Blackhawks don’t need to do is overpay for a veteran defenseman. They gave away way too much to get Timonen last year, and got the same player for Trevor Daley this year. Unless there’s an injury to a veteran defenseman, I think they’re more concerned with adding depth scoring up front.

  12. Tab,

    That’s a good point about Rozsival. Q “trusts” him which is huge.
    I totally agree on Timonen. 2 second rounders turned out to be coup by Hextall.

  13. Noonan- google some Dano workouts… Dano is way closer to 215 than 183lbs.

    Dano’s thighs – are like Earl Campbell’s – THICK!!!
