CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks will be without forward Marian Hossa for up to three weeks with an upper-body injury that happened this past Saturday night at Soldier Field in the final 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game.
Hossa was hit hard by Pittsburgh Penguins forward Craig Adams while playing the puck behind the Pittsburgh net with 6:48 left in the first period and skated slowly to the bench. He remained seated for the rest of the period and didn't return to the ice.
"Probably two-to-three weeks we're looking at," Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after practice Monday at United Center. "There's going to be some quality ice time shared amongst the guys [now]."
Rinne, who hasn't played since late October due to an infection in his surgically-repaired hip, stopped 33 of 35 shots in a pair of games for Milwaukee of the American Hockey League in a conditioning stint and declared himself ready to go over the weekend.

Pat LaFontaine resigned his position as president of hockey operations with the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday and will resume his previous role as vice president of development and community affairs for the NHL.
LaFontaine joined the Sabres on Nov. 13, 2013, after general manager Darcy Regier and coach Ron Rolston were fired. He hired Tim Murray as general manager in January.
“Terry Pegula hired me in November and my primary objective was to lead the Sabres organization through a time of transition,” LaFontaine said in a statement issued by the team. “I'm proud of what we've been able to accomplish in a short period of time and want to thank Terry and Kim Pegula for the opportunity and their support during my time with the Sabres."
