Marian Hossa’s NHL career could be over because he’s allergic to his equipment

Game Youth Matt Prater Jersey Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa will not play in the 2017-18 season because of side effects from medication to treat a skin disorder. There is also a legitimate possibility the future Hall of Famer has played his final game because of serious allergic reactions stemming from the equipment he wears, according to Sportsnet.

Over the course of the last few years, under the supervision of the Blackhawks medical staff, I have been privately undergoing treatment for a progressive skin disorder and the side effects of the medications involved to treat the disorder, Hossa said in a statement Wednesday.

This marks the fourth time the Rangers have been featured in an outdoor game. The franchise was a visitor for a pair of Stadium Series matchups at Yankee Stadium in 2014 with the Flyers and Devils and played at Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park against the Flyers in the 2012 Winter Classic.

Is it an extra added bonus that both Patrick and Hischier are centers, considering how NHL champions tend to be so strong down the middle, and the fact that you drafted (center) Pavel Zacha sixth overall in 2015?

The Golden Knights could opt to select three younger goalies to groom, grow and battle it out. They could select and/or sign a veteran like Fleury, or fellow Cup winner Cam Ward, or Jimmy Howard, to mentor and share the load with a less-experienced netminder or two. As an added bonus, the latter move would help the club reach the salary cap floor as the likely available veteran goalies all carry healthy cap hits.
