Marian Hossa's wife Jana Ferova`, had 'an illness" , post-delivery issues .
Quote from Hossa: (reported by Mark Lazerus):“You love hockey so much, but in this matter, family is the most important thing for me, and I’m sure for everybody here,” said Hossa, who said it was a “rough labor.” “Soon as something like this happens, you want to be there for them.”
Marian returned to Chicago as his wife was readmitted into the hospital. Here is the good news...It appears from all reports that Jana is fine and Marian can now return to the Hawks knowing his family is healthy and well.
