Marian Hossa‘s up-and-down season continued on Monday, as it appears that he might have suffered yet another injury setback.

The 34-year-old left for the locker room after Colorado Avalanche defenseman Ryan O’Byrne hit him along the boards in the first period. Those who worried about concussion problems when his last “upper-body injury” cropped up will likely be unsettled by the scene, described by the Chicago Tribune’s Chris Kuc.

O’Byrne, 28, isn’t likely to be a popular guy in the mind of the Chicago Blackhawks. Kuc points out that he delivered the check that separated Patrick Sharp‘s shoulder, too.

Hossa hasn’t returned to the ice yet during the game. While any ailment isn’t great news, there’s some talk that he might have hurt his left arm or hand instead of suffering a head injury.

    Injuries are a very real concern with this team. Toews, Hossa, Seabrook & Bolland all have multiple concussion history… And I don’t need to see Toews and Seabrook drop the gloves anymore.

    Where’s the video link? I can’t be expected to make snarky comments on O’Byrne’s intent without going to the video…Are the Avs the ‘Hawks kryptonite? They seem to be the only team that consistently gives Chicago difficulties.

      Hey Chuck,…Mary Ann Hossa huh !

      Hossa would bend you into a pretzel, steal your lunch money, pull your thong up over your head and kiss your mother 4 times…pretty sad that a guy named Mary Ann could do this to you.

        Agreed! A bit unsettled by the image of Marian pulling another guy’s thong over his his…what goes on in the Hawks’ locker room?

    Sorry, I forgot Kessler is reported to be at the top of the embellishment chart at the GM meetings.
