DETROIT — Former Wing Marian Hossa will play in his 1,000 NHL game Sunday.
“Good for Hoss, Hoss is a great player,” Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “Obviously, we wish he would have been a lifelong Red Wing but we weren’t able to get that done. He’s found a real home in Chicago and played real well for them.”
Hossa has nine goals and eight assists this season.
“He’s had a great career,” goalie Jimmy Howard said. “He’s a great player, tremendously hard worker. He’s got a nose for the net. Great when he was here, being his teammate. It’s also a lot of fun to play against him.”
