In a home game against the rival Canucks on Tuesday, Chicago Blackhawks' winger Marian Hossa suffered a blow to the head by Vancouver winger Jannik Hansen at 1:10 in the third period.
It was an unpleasantly familiar sight for the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday as Marian Hossa lay motionless on the ice.

In a home game against the rival Canucks, Hossa suffered a blow to the back of the head by Vancouver's Jannik Hansen at 1:10 in the third period.

The two wingers collided as they competed for an airborne puck before Hossa dropped to the ice and remained face down for a few minutes. He was helped off to the locker room and did not return to the game in which he had already potted two goals.

Hansen received a two-minute minor for roughing on the play. The Blackhawks would go on to win 4-3 in a shootout.

Last spring, Hossa was knocked out of a Stanley Cup playoff series against the Phoenix Coyotes after a brutal hit by Raffi Torres. Hossa was stretchered off the ice. He suffered a concussion and wasn't medically cleared to play again until December 2012.

Do you expect a response from the NHL's disciplinary committee for Hansen's hit on Hossa? Watch the hit below and tell us what you think in the comments section.
