Hossa should be 'OK' ... and more injury news

Hossa.jpgThere is good news and bad news on the Hawks' injury front.

The good?

Winger Marian Hossa doesn't appear to be seriously hurt after playing only six minutes, 17 seconds Wednesday against the St. Louis Blues. Hossa left the game early in the second period -- as a precaution -- after being hit by Brad Winchester.

"It's nothing serious; he should be OK," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said.

There also has been "encouraging" progress for Brian Campbell, who suffered a broken rib and collarbone on March 14. The defenseman has been doing some light skating.

"We like the progress he's been making," Quenneville said. "He's been on the ice the last few days and he's feeling pretty good. That's encouraging."

Tomas Kopecky's "upper-body" injury also isn't believed to be serious.

The bad?

There is no timetable for the return of defenseman Kim Johnsson, who was hurt in a hit described as "collision-like" by Quenneville on March 13 in Philadelphia.

"We haven't seen him on the ice," Quenneville said. "Once we see him on the ice, it'll give us a better indication."
