Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa scratched from lineup against Avalanche

CHICAGO - Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa is out of the lineup against Colorado because of an upper-body injury.

Hossa was scratched just before Wednesday night's game against the Avalanche. The Blackhawks (20-0-3) were trying to extend their NHL record after earning at least one point in their first 23 games.

Hossa, who has 10 goals and eight assists, scored a goal Tuesday night in Chicago's 5-3 win over Minnesota.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
