There was good and bad news for the Chicago Blackhawks on the injury front.

Marian Hossa will return to the lineup when the Hawks face the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night, but Patrick Sharp is still not ready to return.

“I felt pretty good (Wednesday),” Hossa said after practice at Johnny’s IceHouse West. “(Thursday) I’ll go before the game in practice and most likely I’m going to play. There’s no reason to wait longer.”

Coach Joel Quenneville went further, saying Hossa would play. The winger missed six games with an upper-body injury that a source said is to this shoulder.

“He’s going to play and we’re looking forward to that,” Quenneville said.

Sharp will miss his 12th game with a left shoulder injury.

“It needs to be 100 percent to come back, especially in the situaiton we’re in,” Sharp said. “It sucks sitting out and missing games. I want to be out there and when it’s ready I want to play for sure.

“I’ve been skating for three weeks and can shoot the puck under control. I’ve been doing it for a long time so it’s frustrating knowing I’m that clsoe to getting into a game but there are some limitations with it.”
