Video- Raffi Torres Hit On Jakob Silfverberg

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 sportsmen video looks shoulder to shoulder to me… I don’t think it’s conclusive, but he shouldn’t be walking that close to the line with his history.

What’s great is the Sharks who have all kinds of leadership issues (at least from the outside) had the intelligence to put an A on that things jersey.  Hope that franchise is proud lol

Can’t stand this guy.

The second video makes it clear Torres goes directly
into the side of Silverberg’s head.

Sit him for at least half the season.

Make it clear he has no career and there is no point
in any team signing or using him, since he never seemingly
even tries to change his game.

Torres could still be a great hitter, with his build and skating.
But he’s instead made a career of launching himself across the ice
into opponents’ heads. I’ll never forget how violent his charge on
Jason Williams was, back when Torres played for Edmonton.

The only thing that Torres does with any regularity is exactly what the NHL
is supposedly trying to get rid of.

Not only does it look like a shot to the head, but he raises his shoulder right before the contact. This is a text book headshot. Torres has a suspension history, ban this clown.
