Raffi Torres Has A History Of Suspensions

from Curtis Pashelka of Working The Corners,

Sharks forward Raffi Torres will have a hearing Monday with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety regarding his illegal hit to the head on Anaheim’s Jakob Silfverberg.

Torres has been suspended four times in his NHL career, but is technically not considered a repeat offender since he has not had any suspensions in the last 18 months. Still, the NHL’s Department of Player Safety guidelines state that “even if a player is not defined as a repeat offender, his past history may come into consideration when determining future supplemental discipline.”

That doesn’t bode well for Torres.

Here’s a brief rundown of his suspension history.

2013 — In Game 1 of the Sharks’ second round playoff series against the Los Angeles Kings, Torres hit Jarret Stoll in the head/shoulder area late in the second period of the Kings’ 2-0 victory. Torres got only a minor penalty for charging on the hit during the game, but the NHL reviewed the play and Torres was suspended for the remainder of the series. Torres was considered a repeat offender in dangerous hits under the league’s collective bargaining agreement. Torres flew to New York for an in-person hearing, but it didn’t help.
