Hossa cleared by doctors

According to the Chicago Tribune, Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa has been cleared by doctors after suffering a severe concussion during the 2012 playoffs.

Hossa, who was injured by Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres during Game 3 of the Western Conference quarterfinals in April, is ready to play after months of rehabilitation.

Since the 33-year-old was injured prior to the lockout, he was able to work with the Hawks' team personnel in Chicago, but has been spending time in Florida since doctors cleared him.

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

In the meantime, teammate Patrick Kane has returned home from Switzerland for the holidays and is hoping the NHL lockout is settled in time to prevent a return trip.
