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

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
