from Curtis Zupke of the LA Times,
Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said Silfverberg was fine and kept him out for precautionary reasons.
"There was no sense bringing him back," Boudreau said. "But we've seen that before."
Torres has a history of suspensions and is facing another one after he was ejected with a match penalty for intent to injure.
"Same player every year," Ryan Kesler said. "I played with the guy [in Vancouver]. He needs to learn how to hit. That has no part in our game anymore."

Sharks forward Raffi Torres is in danger of receiving another long term suspension from the NHL after he was given a match penalty for an illegal hit to the head of Jakob Silfverberg in the first period of San Jose’s game against Anaheim on Saturday at the Honda Center.
Torres was given a 10-minute misconduct and ejected from the game for the hit on the Ducks’ Silfverberg, which came with 7:15 to go in the first period. Silfverberg left the ice and did not return for the rest of the period.
According to NHL rules, any player who receives a match penalty player “shall be automatically suspended from further competition until the Commissioner has ruled on the issue.”
Torres has been suspended four times in his NHL career.

The Ducks have signed right wing Jakob Silfverberg to a four-year contract through the 2018-19 NHL season. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Silfverberg, 24 (10/13/90), has scored 33-48=81 points with a +26 rating and 48 penalty minutes (PIM) in 181 career NHL games with Anaheim and Ottawa. In the 2015 playoffs, he scored 4-14=18 points with a +6 rating in 16 postseason games, ranking third among postseason leaders in assists and tied for seventh in scoring. His 1.13 points-per-game average in the playoffs ranked tied for second in the NHL with Corey Perry (Ryan Getzlaf led with 1.25, min. eight games).
Silfverberg established regular season career highs in most offensive categories last season with the Ducks, including points (13-26=39), goals, assists, plus/minus (+15) and shots on net (189). He also led the league with nine shootout goals (9-for-13) and a 69.2 shootout percentage (min. five attempts) in 2014-15. Among active NHL skaters (career), Silfverberg ranks first in career shootout efficiency (min. 15 attempts) with a 60.9% conversion rate (14-of-23).
from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,
On whether he had an issue with Anaheim’s second goal:
I’m not sure who the player was, but he shoved Muzzin, so basically that’s Muzz losing a battle of inches. He’s who ran into Jonathan. Not – im not sure who it was for them. [Reporter: Thompson, I think.] Thompson, yeah. I was trying to think – it was a four.

from Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen,
Jakob Silfverberg was certainly made to feel at home at Scotiabank Place early Monday.
First off, his Ottawa Senators teammates allowed him to lead them in their on-ice stretches before the morning skate.
When the practice ended, a few Swedish journalists then took centre stage at coach Paul MacLean’s morning press conference, aggressively querying MacLean on what he expected from the talented 21-year-old Swedish prospect and whether he would jump immediately into the fire of an NHL playoff series after capturing a Swedish Elite League title.
“You guys could probably tell me better,” MacLean answered back, pointing out that Silfverberg won the most valuable player in the SEL in both the regular season and playoffs, winning the league title on Thursday with Brynas….
Before Monday, MacLean hadn’t even seen Silfverberg since the Senators development camp in the summer, but the coach was thinking long and hard about throwing him immediately into the fire against the Rangers.
