Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa has been a superstar everywhere he has played in the NHL, Ottawa, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Detroit. He can score at anytime from anywhere on the ice.

The 35-year-old was having another solid season with 24 goals, 26 assists in 57 games. He was on his way to achieving 1,000 points for his career with just 15 more when an injury put him out of action.

In Saturday’s win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, Hossa suffered an upper-body injury which will keep him out of action for 2-3 weeks.

Mike Comrie, who scored at least 30 goals in a season, retired from the National Hockey League after having a third hip operation in the past five years.

The 31-year-old former University of Michigan standout retired two weeks after his recent hip surgery.

Due to the injury, he was limited to 127 games the past three years.

He finished his career last season with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Comrie had just one goal and five assists in 21 games and was an unrestricted free agent when he retired.

The winner of a gold medal for Canada in the 2002 world hockey championship, he is the husband of singer/actress Hilary Duff. The couple is expecting their first child in March.

Comrie played for Edmonton, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Ottawa, the Islanders and Pittsburgh, totaling 589 regular-season games, 168 goals, 197 assists. In 32 career playoff games, he scored four goals with six assists.

Strong first period leads Dallas over Columbus, 4-2

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Dallas Stars are fighting for a playoff spot and if they have the lead going into the third period, the law of averages favors them.

The Stars are 16-0-0 when leading after two periods, which ties them for first in the league. The last time they have lost a game in regulation when leading into the third period, was on October 31, 2009. From that point forward, they are 57-0-5.

Thursday night at Nationwide Arena, the Blue Jackets discovered why the Stars are so good in protecting a lead as the visitors prevailed, 4-2.

The Stars went up 3-0 21 minutes into the game, but the Blue Jackets scored two power-play goals and then had several chances to get the tying goal in the final period but couldn’t get the puck passed Kari Lehtonen who had 26 saves.

Jamie Benn scored two goals, Stephane Robidas had a goal and an assist, and Mike Robeiro added two assists for the Stars who badly need points every game because they are 12th in the Western Conference but only two points behind 8th place Minnesota for the final playoff spot.

Columbus, who has looked more like a real team under interim coach Todd Richards, scored twice in the second period, both on power plays. Vinny Prospal and Rick Nash scored, while Fedor Tyutin and Derick Brassard garnered two assists each.

It was a tough night for two players, defenseman Marc Methot left the game with a broken jaw and right winger Jared Boll broke his foot.

GAME NOTES:

*** NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, met with the media before the game and was in attendance. Earlier in the day, he made the announcement of the 2013 Winter Classic between Detroit and Toronto at the University of Michigan’s football stadium.

*** Scouts were in the pressbox at Nationwide Arena with the trading deadline just 2 1/2 weeks away. The scouts were from Nashville, Ottawa, Detroit, San Jose, New Jersey, Montreal, Vancouver, Chicago, St. Louis and Tampa Bay.

The Columbus Blue Jackets, owning the league’s worst record, will not have a player in the NHL All-Star Game for the third time in 11 years.

Even annual All-Star and team captain Rick Nash will be staying home.

But there is good news, rookie center Ryan Johansen will be a part of the All-Star Weekend, as he is one of 12 rookies who’ll take part in the All-Star weekend later this month in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The 19-year-old Johansen will take part in the skills competition on January 28.

He is having a nice season so far with seven goals, eight assists and a plus-3 rating.
