Marcel Hossa (born October 12, 1981 in Ilava, Czechoslovakia, now Slovakia) is a Slovak ice hockey player for the New York Rangers franchise of the National Hockey League. He wears sweater number 81, playing either left or right wing. He was selected in the first round of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, 16th overall, by the Montreal Canadiens and played his first three NHL seasons for them. He was traded to the Rangers in exchange for forward Garth Murray. He scored during a shootout against New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, and another on a breakaway on St. Louis Blues goalie Curtis Sanford.

He shoots left-handed. His size (6 feet-3.5 inches, 220 pounds) is an asset for playing in the corners. He is more suited to the offensive zone, since his defensive skills are sometimes questioned. His older brother, Marian Hossa, is a high-scoring right wing who currently plays for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

When Hossa scores a goal at Madison Square Garden Fiesta Mexicana by Rex Gildo is played because the beginning of the song contains "Hossa! Hossa! Hossa!"

On July 31, 2007, Hossa re-signed with the Rangers to a one-year deal worth $780,000. Many Ranger fans consider his performance a disappointment. Hossa appeared to be coming into his own last February, scoring 8 goals in 11 games while playing on the Ranger's first line with Jaromir Jagr. However, he suffered a sprained MCL on March 6, 2007, and has not been able to regain that form since. While on the Rangers' roster, he was not dressed for their opening game this season.

In 2008, Hossa left the Rangers to join the resurected Dinamo Riga franchise of the Continental Hockey League.
