from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,
“It was getting really bad,” said Hossa, who played with the injury last season and scored 40 goals with the Red Wings. “The smartest idea was to do it at the time.
“When I lifted something light, I couldn’t ... raise my arms. It was that bad. Right now the rehab is going well, [and] I can’t wait to start working out with the heavier weights on the upper body. When I’m 100 percent, I’ll jump on the ice and not worry about anything.”
Hossa said the injury worsened during the Wings’ run to the Stanley Cup finals last season as he was limited to three assists in the seven-game series the Penguins won. That performance drew the ire of many Wings fans who didn’t realize Hossa was injured.
“That’s part of our business,” Hossa said. “We can’t talk about injuries during the playoffs. People can say whatever they want. They don’t see what’s happening inside.”
