Drewiske out four weeks; two other Canadiens ailing

Montreal Canadiens defenseman Davis Drewiske is expected to miss four weeks with a shoulder injury, Douglas Murray and Francis Bouillon are each day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

"These (Murray and Bouillon) are training camp injuries. It's nothing major, and we are just making sure not to aggravate those injuries," coach Michel Therrien said, according to the team's website.

"Drewiske will be out for a month. His injury is more serious, but that's why you need to have a lot of good defensemen in your system. We recalled [Darren] Dietz, who was in Kingston [when we got in touch with him]. He had to make a U-turn and come back to Montreal."

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.
