The Chicago Blackhawks host the San Jose Sharks Friday, but whether that’s with Marian Hossa in the lineup still remains to be seen.

Hossa left Tuesday’s game against the Vancouver Canucks after taking a forearm to the head from Jannik Hansen early in the third period. Hossa didn’t return and on Wednesday the NHL suspended Hansen one game.

According to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune, Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville should provide an update following Thursday’s practice.

The Hawks are currently the best team in the National Hockey League. They have a 13-0-3 record – which tied the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks for the best start to a season in league history – and are four points up on the second-place Ducks for top spot in the Western Conference.

Hossa, 34, has eight goals and 14 points in 16 games this season for Chicago.

    You didn’t “reblog” this, you copied and pasted douche nozzle.

      So he’s not a douche himself, just a nozzle for other douches? Wait, since he ‘reblogged’ this post, are you calling PHT a douche?

    HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSAAAAAAA! Hope he’s okay, but based on the fact they’re having a little “announcement” session instead of just saying “He’s fine.” I think that may not be the case. I’d love to see the Hawks just beat the record altogether with a win, and it’ll be a lot easier if Hossa’s in the line up.
