The Blackhawks recalled Vincent Hinostroza and placed Marian Hossa on injured reserve on Sunday.
Hossa was injured in the Blackhawks' overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night. Coach Joel Quenneville said following the game that, while he didn't think Hossa's lower-body injury was serious, the forward "could miss some time." An update on Hossa is expected on Monday.
