Chicago Blackhawks’ and hockey legend Marian Hossa hasn’t played a game in four years since hanging up the skates in 2017. The three-time Stanley Cup Champion will lace them up on Sunday afternoon in the Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic.

Hossa will be playing for the World Legends team captained by fellow inductee Mike Modano. On the other side of the ice will be a familiar face. Brent Seabrook, while not being inducted this year, is playing for the Canada Legends team. You can find the full rosters here.

In the days leading up to induction weekend, Hossa’s former teammate Patrick Kane was asked about just how important Marian Hossa was to the Blackhawks in his time here.

Unfortunately, for fans looking to get one last glimpse of one of the all-time greats on the ice, the game will not be televised. On Monday, Hossa will be officially inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, this time publicly.

Technically, Marian Hossa was inducted into the Hall of Fame last June. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a ceremony did not take place. Fans will be able to watch the official induction at 7:00 PM CST on NHL Network.

Both Hossa and former Blackhawk Doug Wilson will be honored in the ceremony.
