from Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago,
"Obviously he surprised with a hit from behind," Hossa said Thursday. "He hit me pretty hard in the back of the head. Right after, I was shaky. That's basically why I didn't return, because I was shaky. We had the day off, and it kind of slowed down. This morning I woke up and felt much better."
Hossa said he doesn't believe he suffered a concussion on the hit.
"No, I don't believe [I had a concussion] because more than anything he surprised me with a punch from behind," Hossa said. "I was shaky for a few minutes right after that, which is why I didn't return to the game."
Hansen met with the NHL on Wednesday and was given a one-game suspension for the hit.
"It's up to the league," Hossa said of the suspension. "They're making the decisions. But I'm glad at least one game.
Hopefully, more guys learn from it. He said he was reaching for the puck. I didn't buy it, because when you're reaching for the puck you don't hit somebody that hard to the head."
