Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa to play
Kane will line up between Hossa and Andrew Brunette, as coach Joel Quenneville confirmed the team will play him at center in the preseason. Kane hasn't played in a game as he recovers from offseason wrist surgery.
Hossa had a late start to training camp due to the birth of his daughter while also mourning the loss of his close friend, Pavol Demitra, who died in a plane crash in Russia earlier this month.
The Blackhawks are 1-3 in exhibition play with three games left before the season opener on Oct. 7 in Dallas.
Jesse Rogers covers the Blackhawks for ESPN 1000 and ESPNChicago.com.
