Tracy Myers reports that Marian Hossa generated a “deafening ovation” during the Chicago Blackhawks’ convention and his latest update provides fans with another reason to cheer. ESPN Chicago’s Jesse Rogers passes along word that Hossa thinks he’ll be ready for training camp after suffering a concussion from a Raffi Torres hit during the 2012 playoffs.

“It could be different on the ice when I get my first hit but so far, without contact, I’m doing everything at a high level,” Hossa said. “Things are right now are on the level where I want it to be and I’m happy where I am so far … The way I feel right now I believe I’ll be ready for camp.”

Hossa elaborated to Myers that he’s been training for about a month, although he hasn’t done any on-ice work yet.

    Here’s hoping Hossa recovers and the season starts on time. Baseball season just isn’t cutting it.

    Torres is still a little b*tch

      I think anytime a player has to take a guy out because the other player is better, it’s simply a b!%ch move.

      It waters down the sport and reduces the reason we pay good money to watch the best in the world.

    Torres isn’t a b**ch, Duncan Keith is the one who’s a b**ch. Torres’ play was aggressive, obviously over-aggressive. He was trying to set the tone for the game as a physical one and his emotions got the best of him.
    Duncan Keith layed a fierce cheapshot on Daniel Sedin and celebrated the act with his teammates. He was unapologetic.
    I guess the Karma Police just served notice to the Blackhawks and their conspiracy-theory driven fans.

    Have another beer, Blackhawks!!
