Marian Hossa said he is ready for Saturday's opener following the second day of Chicago's training camp on Monday.

"It's been a long time without hockey for me," said Hossa, who suffered a concussion in the first round of the 2012 postseason last April. "I tried to stay in the best shape I could (during the lockout) and so far I feel good." He has received some contact, which is a good sign after he took an accidental big hit from teammate Brandon Bollig during practice three days ago. Hossa appears to be all systems go, which is great news for the Blackhawks and potential fantasy owners.
