The Stat Line of the Night – 11/25/09 – Marian Hossa
Total Pro Sports- The Chicago Blackhawks made a bold move in free agency this past offseason by signing Marian Hossa to a 12-year, $62.8 million deal. They had to wait over 20 games to see their prized acquisition in action, but it was well worth it.
Hossa finally made his season debut on Wednesday night and the impact was immediate. He had four shots on goal and lit the lamp twice. His first goal was a shorty assisted by Jonathan Toews in the 2nd period. It put the Hawks up 2-0. Later in the 3rd period with the Hawks already pouring it on San Jose, Hossa scored again for his second of the night and the Hawks led 6-0. They went on to win 7-2.
The Blackhawks and their fans have to be thrilled. They are in first place in their division and just added a 40-goal scorer to their top line. And they beat the NHL’s top team in San Jose at a soldout HP Pavillion. For his 2-goal performance in his season debut, Marian Hossa gets The Stat Line of the Night for 11/25/09.
