Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after practice on Friday that Marian Hossa was not likely to play Monday against Los Angeles at the United Center.

Hossa didn’t practice Friday because of what is believed to be an injured shoulder suffered in Monday’s win at Colorado.

“Hopefully, he’ll get on the ice on Sunday,” Quenneville said. “He’s progressing.”

Quenneville has no worries that the injury is a long-term thing.

Meanwhile, Patrick Sharp skated on his own before Friday’s practice.

“He’s progressing, but it’s still not close,” Quenneville said.

When asked if Sharp were a week to two weeks away from playing, Quenneville said: “I guess we’re probably somewhere in that (time) frame.”

Quenneville said he probably would double shift Patrick Kane again on Monday against the Kings.
