The Blackhawks expect to regain defenseman Brent Seabrook for Thursday night's game at Nashville. He practiced on Wednesday, but center Jonathan Toews didn't. Both have battled concussions since last Wednesday's home game against Vancouver. Marian Hossa, meanwhile, went through his first full practice ever with the Hawks. He signed a 12-year $62.8 million contract on July 1 but then underwent shoulder surgery three weeks later. He had skated on his own for a week before joining his teammates. Hossa, however, won't be in the lineup for awhile. The target date for him to play his first game is Nov. 25 at San Jose. Hossa didn't travel with the team to Nashville. Toews didn't make the trip to Nashville, either, but coach Joel Quenneville wouldn't rule him out of Friday's home game against Montreal.
