Hawks ‘working on deal’ to trade Hossa’s contract, Hinostroza to Coyotes, per report

The 39-year-old Hossa missed the 2017-18 NHL season due to a progressive skin disorder, meaning he’s allergic to his hockey equipment. The Hawks could place Hossa on long-term injured reserve like they did last season, but it...
