from Len Ziehm of the Chicago Sun-Times,
Hossa knows his way around. This is his fourth NHL team in three seasons. He started with the Ottawa Senators, then was with the Atlanta Thrashers before his failed championship bids with the Penguins and Red Wings. He also played for Slovakia in two Winter Olympics. So the Hawks won’t be his first contender, but they might turn out to be the best team he has played on.
‘‘I’ve been on quite a few, and this one is right there,’’ he said. ‘‘The advantage of this team is it’s mostly young guys who are just getting better and stronger in their understanding of the game.’‘
Last year he played for an old team in Detroit. The Hawks are the exact opposite.
‘‘This is the youngest group of guys I’ve ever played with,’’ Hossa said. ‘‘It’s been fun in the dressing room. It’s a different crowd than in Detroit. They were a little more mature there.’‘
