Surgery a last resort for Hossa

The Chicago Blackhawks are monitoring the Marian Hossa situation very closely as the talent winger has been bothered with a rotator cuff injury for sometime.
Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman called Marian Hossa’s right rotator cuff injury “relatively minor” on Wednesday but admitted surgery remains a possibility.
“If it’s something that needs to be fixed, that would be the way to go,” Bowman said. “Surgery would be a last resort and we’re not at that point, but if we have to do it, we have to do it.”
Red Wings GM Ken Holland claims the injury happened before Hossa got to them
“He was hurt before he got to us,” said Holland, who signed Hossa as a free agent in the summer of 2008. “Our doctors looked at him and we had conversations about whether to have surgery.
“Our doctors recommended he should have something done at some point, but it’s something he can play with.”
