This will be the veteran’s second straight game out of the lineup with a lower body injury suffered during Friday’s loss to the Minnesota Wild.
It appears that there’s a good chance Hossa won’t be out long-term though, as Quenneville had initially expected that Hossa would be ready for Wednesday’s match.
Hossa currently has one goal and three assists through 11 games for Chicago.
