Hossa to miss at least four preseason games

The Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday announced that forward Marian Hossa will miss at least the next four preseason games with an upper-body injury.

"He aggravated an injury there," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville told reporters in Chicago after his team's morning skate in preparation for a preseason game Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins. "We're going to keep him off. I wouldn't expect him in the next four games here in the next five nights. We'll see how he progresses after that."

However, Quenneville said he expects Hossa to be ready for the regular-season opener, Oct. 1 against the Washington Capitals (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN).

"Whether we're talking seriousness of it or not, we feel he'll be back and he'll be fine," Quenneville said.

"He did have a light skate today and it went well," coach Pete DeBoer said.

Forward Damien Brunner, in camp on a tryout, will play against the New York Islanders in a preseason game Thursday.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
