Husband: #81 Marian Hossa,
Kids: Mia, 28 months; Zoja,
How would you describe your husband as a
dad? He loves the girls. He is a proud daddy
of his little princesses. Usually men want a son, especially
professional athletes. But during my pregnancies, he was so happy

doesn't try to skate yet. But she knows daddy goes to play hockey.
And she knows the Hawks! When we are watching games on TV, she
looks at him and says ™Daddy∫ and ™Hawks∫ or ™goal,∫ but that's it.
She doesn't have patience to watch the game for more than 30

different city. We are happy to be here; Chicago is a great
