ESPN Chicago reports that Hossa was taken to the hospital, but was released later in the night. According to the team, he is expected to make a full recovery, though a timetable for his return remains undetermined.
"After initial evaluation on the ice, (Hossa) was taken by ambulance to the hospital for further testing, which yielded encouraging results," team physician Dr. Michael Terry said in a statement given by the Blackhawks after their 3-2 overtime loss. "He has been released from the hospital and we are monitoring him closely at home."
Torres received no penalty on the play, although Hawks' Brandon Bollig immediately went after him and received a two-minute minor for roughing and a ten minute misconduct. Torres is no stranger to the Hawks for borderline play after a hit on defenseman Brent Seabrook during last year's first-round playoff series against the Vancouver Canucks.
"First off, I hope he's all right," Torres said after the game. "But as far as the hit goes, I felt like it was a hockey play. I was just trying to finish my hit out there, and, as I said, I hope he's all right."
Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville could be facing a fine from the league after he called out the officiating for not penalizing Torres on the play.
"It was a brutal hit," Quenneville said. "I saw exactly what happened. It was right in front of me. How four guys missed it was hard. The refereeing tonight was a disgrace."
In 81 regular-season games with the Hawks this year, Hossa recorded 29 goals and 48 assists for 77 points.
