Marian Hossa, forward for the Chicago Blackhakws, recently answered some questions about his decision to let doctors perform surgery on his right rotator cuff.

Hossa said the recovery was coming along well and that he doesn’t have a different time table other than what the doctors have told him. Hossa is scheduled to miss two months of the regular season.

Hossa said it was his choice to have surgery because the pain was just getting to be too much. He also added that having surgery seemed like the “smart” thing to do, and that he is “happy with that decision.”

So far the recovery looks like it is going pretty well and Hossa should be back in the time they said he would be.

Losing Hossa to surgery could have a huge effect on the Hawks this year. They will need their young forwards to produce, and to keep them in the race early on.

The Hawks are currently in their preseason. Opening game occurs this Friday Oct. 2 at 11:00am cst in Switzerland. The Hawks will be facing off against the Florida Panthers that Friday and Saturday.
