Marian Hossa Injury: Blackhawks Forward Ruled Out For Game 4 Vs. Coyotes

Marian Hossa will miss Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal against the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday night at United Center. Hossa was injured in the first period of Game 3 on a brutal hit by Coyotes forward Raffi Torres. He was taken to the hospital and released on Tuesday night, but his injuries will keep him out of action for at least a game.

Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville made the announcement on Wednesday afternoon, saying that there's "no change" in Hossa's status. He remains at home recovering from his injuries, and no, the Blackhawks haven't spoken publicly about what exactly those injuries are outside of "upper body."

Torres, meanwhile, will miss Game 4 as well. He could miss much more time after being suspended indefinitely by the league for the hit, but that will be decided at an in-person hearing on Friday in New York City.
