Team Europe's Marian Hossa leaves exhibition for undisclosed injury

QUEBEC CITY, Quebec -- Team Europe forward Marian Hossa left his team's first exhibition game of the World Cup of Hockey to go to a local hospital for X-rays on an undisclosed injury, according to a source.

After the game, Team Europe coach Ralph Krueger said through a league spokesman that there was no immediate update on Hossa's status.

The veteran Chicago Blackhawks forward is the most prolific career goal scorer on the Team Europe roster; Hossa started the exhibition game against Team North America on the second line.

He played just 10:47 in the exhibition game, finishing with one shot on goal. The 37-year-old Slovakia native had 13 goals in 64 games last season for Chicago.
