Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville might have been more “in the dark” than “coy” when he discussed Marian Hossa’s injury last night. Quenneville provided a few more scraps of detail about the situation today, but only gave the terse explanation that Hossa will only miss a couple weeks.

Quenneville told ESPN Chicago’s Jesse Rogers about Hossa’s situation today.

Hossa left Wednesday’s game with an apparent arm or shoulder injury in the second period after falling near a corner on a Blackhawks power play. Officially, the team is deeming it an “upper body injury.”

“It’s not of a serious nature,” Quenneville said.

That’s mostly good news for the Blackhawks, as Hossa currently leads the team with 11 points (on seven goals and four assists in 11 games played).

It might be touch and go for “up to a couple of weeks” but we’ll pass along any updates regarding his readiness to return to action once it comes along.
