Coyotes' Raffi Torres suspended indefinitely
Torres laid a brutal hit on Chicago's Marian Hossa in the first period of the Coyotes' 3-2 overtime win in Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Tuesday night.
No penalty was called on the play, and Hossa was taken off the ice via stretcher and spent time in a Chicago hospital.
Torres has a history of suspensions, and that is one of the factors that NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan considers when doling out suspensions.
The Coyotes lead the series 2-1 with Game 4 slated for Thursday night in Chicago.
