“It could be different on the ice when I get my first hit but so far, without contact, I’m doing everything at a high level,” Hossa said Friday at the opening of the annual fan
convention. “I don’t have any problems so far.”
“I didn’t have to rush anything, that was the most important thing,” Hossa said. “I took my time. I took a long time to just calm down and relax… Things are right now are on the level where I want it to be and I’m happy where I am so far.”
Torres was suspended for 25 games but the penalty was reduced on appeal to 21. Hossa says he is no longer mad at Torres and is just looking forward to the season.
“The way I feel right now I believe I’ll be ready for camp,” Hossa said.
