Kane will line up between Hossa and Andrew Brunette, as coach Joel Quenneville confirmed the team will play him at center in the preseason. Kane hasn't played in a game as he recovers from offseason wrist surgery.
Hossa had a late start to training camp due to the birth of his daughter while also mourning the loss of his close friend, Pavol Demitra, who died in a plane crash in Russia earlier this month.
The Blackhawks are 1-3 in exhibition play with three games left before the season opener on Oct. 7 in Dallas.
