Chicago Blackhawks forward, Marion Hossa will miss at least two weeks with an upper body injury the team confirmed today.
Hossa picked up the injury during the first period of their victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Solider Field on Sunday and did not return.
After the game, coach Joel Quenneville said that he did not believe it was serious. He today confirmed that Hossa will miss between two and three weeks of action.
Following a practice on Monday, Quenneville said: "Probably two-to-three weeks we're looking at. There's going to be some quality ice time shared amongst the guys."
Hossa had recorded 24 goals and 26 assists so far this season and has been a productive member of one of the league's most potent offenses. The 17-year veteran played for Slovakia during the recent Olympics in Sochi, where they finished with two losses and one tie.
The Slovakian player could miss up to 10 games for the Blackhawks as the team continue their quest for a Stanley Cup repeat.
