Meeting with reporters in person for the first time since a hit by Coyotes forward Raffi Torres in Game 3 of the series, Hossa said he’s been working out hard off the ice for about a month and showing no symptoms.
“Lots of time has passed by and that helped me,” Hossa said Friday afternoon at a media function prior to the start of the Hawks’ annual fan convention this weekend at the Chicago Hilton. “I didn’t have to rush anything and that was most important thing. After (it was decided) that I couldn’t fly home to Slovakia, I just basically didn’t do anything. I just relaxed and (at) some point I decided to try to do something, start working out. Things right now are on a level where I want to be and I’m happy where I am so far.”
However, Hossa hasn’t gotten back on the ice.
“I’m going to take my time and first do everything at the gym, cardio, and the time will come soon when I step on the ice and start doing things on the ice,” he said. “The way I feel right now, I feel I will be ready for (training) camp. No (symptoms) right now. It could be different on the ice, when I get my first hit or somebody just (pushes) me ... but so far without the contact I can do everything at a high level.”
