Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Marcel Hossa
Marcel Hossa was born October 12, 1981 in Ilava, Slovakia. The 2nd choice, 16th overall selection of the Montreal Canadiens in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, Marcel is the brother of Ottawa Senators superstar Marian Hossa.

The Ilava, Slovakia native is a graduate of the Western Hockey League's Portland Winter Hawks where he spent three seasons leading the Winter Hawks in scoring during the 2000-01 season and leading them to the WHL Finals.

An offensively gifted player, Hossa is a two-time member of Slovakia's World Junior Team (2000-2001) and was a member of Dukla Trencin of the Slovakian Junior League before coming to North America in 1998-99.

Following his three years in Portland, Hossa joined Montreal's AHL affiliate in Quebec and went on to finish fifth in team scoring, while playing in ten games with the parent club. Hossa went on to split the next two seasons between the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs and the Canadiens.

Prior to the 2005-06 season, Hossa was dealt to the New York Rangers where in his first season with the blueshirts he played in a career high 64 games. In his second season in New York, Hossa recorded a career high 18 points with the club before he injured his knee and missed the latter part of the season. Prior to the injury, Hossa scored 8 goals in 11 games while playing on the team's top line in February. Hossa returned in 2007-08 and skated in 36 games with the Rangers but struggled to produce offensively. At the NHL trading deadline that season, Hossa was dealt to the Phoenix Coyotes with prospect goaltender Al Montoya and a conditional draft pick in 2009 for David LeNeveu, Fredrik Sjorstrom and Josh Gratton.

Aside from his World Junior experience, Hossa, represented Slovakia at the 2005, 2006 and 2008 World Championships, and the 2006 Winter Olympics.
