At the end of the Blackhawks live broadcast of their morning skate on Friday, coach Joel Quenneville confirmed that Marian Hossa will dress against the San Jose Sharks.
Defenseman Brent Seabrook is expected to play tonight as well.
Quenneville also indicated that Daniel Carcillo could return to the lineup as well, meaning the Blackhawks will have two forwards listed as healthy scratches. Brandon Bollig and Jamal Mayers would be the most likely candidates for an evening in the press box.
Also, Corey Crawford returned to practice. The Hawks are expected to send Henrik Karlsson back to Rockford at some point in the not-too-distant future.
Steve Montador took part in the team practice as well. If/When he comes back, the Blackhawks will have to make another roster decision on their blue liine; the Hawks are carrying seven defensemen without including Montador.
