Slovak TV Markíza reports that Marián Hossa and his wife have welcomed their first baby girl into their family. What should be the happiest moment of their lives is marked by a tragedy though as one of Marián´s closest friends Pavol Demitra was one of the victims of the plane crash in Yaroslavl earlier this week.
Just this morning Marián told the SME newspaper when asked about the future birth of his child: "We´re already past the due date. I never realized that we´d be waiting for this in such a sorrow." The interview (can be read here in Slovak: http://hokej.sme.sk/c/6047926/marian...mali-radi.html), he also says that he´s planning to fly to Chicago on the 14th, but that he has talked to the Hawks coach and agreed that in case the funeral was later he´d arrive a few days late.
Congrats to the Hossas, the hockey world need more good news like this in such times like these!
