Blackhawks place Marian Hossa (leg) on injured reserve

Chicago Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa has been placed on injured reserve with a leg injury.

What It Means:

Hossa was hurt Saturday night after taking a nasty spill into the boards following a Hampus Lindholm hip check. Father Time appears to have finally caught up with the long time veteran, as Hossa's posted just 10 goals and 28 points with a dismal 6.8 shooting percentage through 54 games this season. Vincent Hinostroza was recalled to take his place.

Hossa's 52.2 Corsi For Percentage is the worst mark of since his rookie campaign while his 1.4 Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength is his worst clip since 2011-'12.
