Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa is opened to playing anywhere in the team's lineup next season, he said at the team's convention Saturday.

"There are going to be a few changes in the lineup because a few guys left and there are new guys coming in," Hossa said. "It's hard to calculate my role. I'm open to any solution. (Coach Joel Quenneville) and the coaching staff are going to have some ideas. Wherever I play, I'll be happy."
