Marian Hossa's autobiography, "Marian Hossa: My Journey from Trencín to the Hall of Fame" is set to release Nov. 8.

Scott Powers of The Athletic co-authored the book with Hossa.

Hossa, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last November, signed a one-day contract in April to retire with the Blackhawks. The forward won three Stanley Cup championships with Chicago (2010, 2013, and 2015). A progressive skin disorder ended his playing career after the 2016-17 season.

Three days after Hossa officially retired, the Blackhawks announced they would retire the winger's No. 81 during the 2022-23 season. The team did not say what day the ceremony will happen.
