According to Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman, it sounds like Marian Hossa won't be having surgery on his back. Hossa admitted after the season that he hurt his back during the Stanley Cup Finals. It is why he missed Game 3. Bowman had this to say on Friday at the Hawks Prospect Camp:
He didn't need surgery. He's doing much better than he was. He was another player that played through an awful lot of pain in the final. I think at this point there's nothing to be alarmed about.
