My bet is that you cannot find such information ANYWHERE. This is just the ability to use a crutch. NO ONE cares about his last name. Only about what he does on the ice.
We already know is strength isn't scoring goals at this stage, but strong play on the boards, puck possession, penalty killing, and setting up screens. Look at all of the posts in this thread just referring about his offensive ability:

Do we continue to wait and hope that it eventually comes as we have done so many times or is it time to move on?

We've been a winning team with Hossa, and he still is a fairly young guy as this is only his 3rd year as a full-time NHLer and he still has a year or two left before I think you can discount is Potential offensively (remember, hes coming off a knee injury which usually takes someone a season before they get back to normal). If you really want to focus on offense, be fair, Jagr and Drury are also having problems. But we're winning, and winning with Hossa in the lineup. I don't even care if he develops his offense at this point when hes been developing into a fine defensive player. When our strength this season is defense and our offense is struggling, we can't get rid of our defensive players and expect to win.

Hossa's been a bust this year. After that stretch that he had last year, many thought that this year he'd be a beast. Instead, he's terrible. That coupled with Jagr being terrible, Straka being out, and no Nylander and you have a disaster.
