Even with the emergence of young players, everyone knows who the keys are for any Blackhawks success. While he’s not atop that list, Marian Hossa is certainly among the most crucial players for another run at the Cup.

Unfortunately, Hossa is in the midst of a scoring drought like he’s never before experienced. The former All-Star hasn’t scored a goal since early December.

Making matters even worse, he’s not even contributing to other players scoring. Hossa hasn’t tallied an assist five games, and only one helper in his last eight games.

Previous to his scoreless streak, Hossa wasn’t exactly lighting the NHL on fire. Since the start of December, Hossa has only scored one goal.

Through his 18-year career, Hossa has only scored fewer than 20 goals in a season three times before. The first two game in his first two seasons in the NHL, neither of which were full, and the third came in his injury shortened 2012-13 season with the Blackhawks. Roughly halfway through the season, he’s scored only five goals this year.
