Blackhawks' Marian Hossa: Likely back in action Sunday

Hossa (lower body) is likely to return from a one-game absence for Sunday's game against the Avalanche, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

Wary fantasy owners will want to make sure that Hossa skates in warmups, but all signs point to his return coming Sunday against a hapless Colorado squad. The veteran winger has notched just two points in his last eight contests, but has taken a healthy 21 shots on goal during that span, giving him additional upside in a potent Chicago offense.
