On a day where negative lockout news reigned, a positive occurred in Chicago.
Marian Hossa, who suffered a season-ending concussion in April, was back in the Windy City working out with several Blackhawks coaches.
According to CSN Chicago’s Tracey Myers, Hossa participated in an hour-long training regime on Tuesday, skating with conditioning coach Kevin Delaney. The veteran winger was “working out on a high level,” but declined an interview request following the session.
Hossa has been largely silent since suffering the concussion at the hands of Raffi Torres in Chicago’s opening-round playoff loss to the Coyotes.
The Slovak sniper spoke with the media in July — discussing the dark days that immediately followed the hit — in what was his last major interview regarding his health and recovery.
