Marian Hossa headed back to Chicago for a family emergency. Although Coach Q didn't divulge any information, he didn't think it was anything too serious. Hope that is the case. Versteeg is projected to be on today's first line with Toews and Sharp.
Handzus is still out of the line-up, but should be joining the teams soon. Bryan Bickell is most likely out a few weeks. Michael Kostka is still weeks away. Remember, once some of these players are eligible to return, it is not as simple as them returning. They have to worry about making things fit under the cap. The Hawks are "tight" with not much breathing room with regards to the cap (as are most teams). Morin would appear to be the guy that gets the heave-ho once Handzus returns.
The Hawks will be playing Vancouver tonight. #3rd game on this 7 game road trip. 1-1-0 to date.
