Blackhawks activate Handzus; Hossa out

The Chicago Blackhawks activated forward Michal Handzus from injured reserve prior to their game against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.

Handzus, who was placed on IR on Nov. 14 with a lower-body injury, has one goal and two assists in nine games with the Blackhawks this season. He missed 13 games due to the injury.

The Blackhawks will be without forward Marian Hossa against the Canucks. He left the team to attend to a family matter.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
