Torres hit Kings forward Jarret Stoll last night and injured Stoll on the play. The hit did not look too bad but Torres has a history of suspensions, I think we all remember his 25-game suspension last season for his hit on Marian Hossa.
Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres has been suspended for 25 games for launching himself to deliver a late hit to the head of Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa during Game 3 of the teams' Western Conference Quarterfinal playoff series in Chicago on Tuesday, April 17, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.
