Hossa Out With Upper-Body Injury, Believed To Be His Back

from Tim Sassone of Between The Circles at the Chicago Daily-Herald,

In what might be a preview of things to come this season, Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa has aggravated an upper body injury and will miss at least the next four games.

It's believed to be Hossa's back, which sidelined him for Game 3 in the Stanley Cup Final. He participated in the first scrimmages of camp at Notre Dame last weekend and was one of the best players in the ice.

Hawks coach Joel Quenneville hopes Hossa can play in the final preseason game Sept. 28 against Washington and be ready to start the season on Oct. 1 against the Capitals.
