The 37-year-old Hossa, a five-time All-Star right winger, has
not played since Dec. 20 because of an upper-body injury. He
missed five games.
The Carolina Hurricanes activated defenseman Justin Faulk from
injured reserve and placed forward Elias Lindholm on injured
reserve with an upper-body injury, the team announced.
Faulk, 24, missed four games with a lower-body injury after
being placed on injured reserve on Saturday. He has not played
since the Dec. 23 game against the Boston Bruins.
Washington Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov was fined $2,000
for embellishment, the NHL announced.
The fine is for an incident during a game against the New Jersey
Devils on Dec. 29.
Capitals forward Andre Burakovsky wasn't shy about calling his
shot prior to Thursday night's game against the white-hot
Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Blue Jackets are bidding to match the 1992-93 Pittsburgh
Penguins for the longest winning streak in NHL history should
they emerge victorious for the 17th straight time on Thursday.
