Bad News Blackhawks???
By: Jeff Little • July 22nd, 2009
ESPN is reporting that Marian Hossa, the 30 year old winger who just signed a 12 year, 62.8 million contract with Chicago, is nursing a shoulder injury and that surgery may yet be an option. No details on the nature of the injury, but the Blackhawks say that they were aware of the injury before they signed him, and are ‘closely monitoring’ the situation.
I bet they are . . .
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
