Hossa returns to the ice

While the CBA negotiations is simmering towards a boiling point, good news came out of Chicago after Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa took to the ice to continue his rehabilitation from a severe concussion.

According to, Hossa took part in some hard skating drills with some Blackhawks coaches during an hour-long session on Tuesday. The forward is allowed to work with team personnel and will also be paid as an injured player during the lockout.

Hossa, 33, was injured during Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinals in April after an illegal hit by Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres, who was suspended for the hit to the head.

"Everything could be different when I'm on the ice, if I get hit or if someone pushes me," Hossa said at the Hawks convention in July. "But without contact, I'm doing everything on a high level."

If the NHL lockout drags on, it will give Hossa more time to recover.

In 81 games with the Hawks last season, Hossa recorded 29 goals and 48 assists for 77 points.
