Blackhawks' Marian Hossa to miss 2-3 weeks

CHICAGO (AP) -Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa will likely miss two to three weeks because of a lower-body injury, leaving the defending Stanley Cup champions without one of their top scorers.

Hossa was injured in a collision with teammate Nick Boynton during Monday's practice and had to be helped off the ice. He also missed five games earlier this season with an upper-body injury.

The latest injury to Hossa, who is fourth on the team with 18 points (eight goals, 10 assists), may slow the momentum the Blackhawks built during on a 4-2-0 road trip.

Chicago recalled forward Jeremy Morin from the American Hockey League's Rockford IceHogs to take Hossa's place before Tuesday's home game against St. Louis.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
