  • Blackhawks' Marian Hossa: Going on LTIR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hossa (illness) will be placed on long-term injured reserve Wednesday, Tracey Myers of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The move is more of a formality at this point, as Hossa had already been ruled out for the 2017-18 season due to a progressive skin disorder, but it will also allow the Blackhawks to be more liberal with their transactions as the season begins. Rookie Alex DeBrincat and the returning Brandon Saad will be among the team's new additions looking to fill the void left by Hossa.

  • Blackhawks' Marian Hossa: Out for 2017-18 season
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hossa will not play during the 2017-18 season due to the side effects of medication related to a progressive skin disorder, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports. Hossa and the Blackhawks were very clear in their statements that his absence would be for the 2017-18 campaign, making no mention of retirement or the future. The winger registered 45 points in 73 contests this past year while averaging 16:51 of ice time -- production that will be sorely missed in Chicago. It's all but certain that the veteran will be placed on long-term injured reserve in order to give the 'Hawks additional cap space -- $5.275 million at the most -- which should give them some extra flexibility heading into the upcoming season.

  • Hossa could be forced to retire because of a lingering allergy to his hockey equipment. According to Brian Hedger of, Hossa indicated during a season-ending press conference that he still enjoys playing and expects to come back, but he's reportedly dealing with a fairly severe allergy that could threaten his career. Hossa took medication for the allergy over the course of this past season, which seems to give some optimism for a return, although it will be a situation to monitor over the offseason.

  • Blackhawks' Marian Hossa: Will sit out of Worlds
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hossa will stay home during the 2017 IIHF World Championships, Brian Hedger of reports. At the age of 38, Hossa is going to leave it to the young guys to lead the Slovakian team at Worlds. The veteran winger shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, as he recorded 26 goals and 19 assists this season, even though he was held pointless during the the first-round sweep by the Preds.

  • Blackhawks' Marian Hossa: Resting Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hossa (rest) won't play Thursday against Anaheim, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The Blackhawks are locked in as the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, so it wouldn't be surprising if they opted to shut Hossa down for the final two games of the regular season. Either way, the Slovakian winger will be ready to rock for Game 1 of Chicago's first-round playoff series.
