Looking Up To Marian Hossa

from Scott Powere of ESPNChicago,

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane was celebrating his own milestone after reaching 500 career points on Sunday, but he preferred to divert the attention to what teammate Marian Hossa was on the verge of accomplishing.

“I think a couple games or next game we’ll get an even better milestone when big Hoss reaches a 1,000,” Kane said on Sunday.

Kane’s statement was partially about Hossa being two points shy of 1,000 career points, but it was also about how much respect he possesses for Hossa. It’s a feeling that’s shared by most of the Blackhawks. While the numbers Hossa has put up throughout his 17-year career are impressive, it’s his work ethic in all zones and how he is as a teammate that has made him so revered in the locker room.
