Tracy Myers reports that Marian Hossa generated a “deafening ovation” during the Chicago Blackhawks’ convention and his latest update provides fans with another reason to cheer. ESPN Chicago’s Jesse Rogers passes along word that Hossa thinks he’ll be ready for training camp after suffering a concussion from a Raffi Torres hit during the 2012 playoffs.

“It could be different on the ice when I get my first hit but so far, without contact, I’m doing everything at a high level,” Hossa said. “Things are right now are on the level where I want it to be and I’m happy where I am so far ... The way I feel right now I believe I’ll be ready for camp.”

Hossa elaborated to Myers that he’s been training for about a month, although he hasn’t done any on-ice work yet.


Torres’ suspension gets reduced by four games.

Are ultra long-term contracts a blessing or a curse?

NHLPA wasn’t happy about how Torres’ suspension was handled.
