San Jose Sharks forward Raffi Torres will have a hearing Monday with the NHL Department of Player Safety for a hit on Anaheim Ducks forward Jakob Silfverberg during a preseason game Saturday.


Silfverberg was hit by Torres at 12:45 of the second period. He left the game and did not return. Torres received a match penalty for an illegal check to the head.


The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: illegal check to the head/interference/charging.


Torres waived his right to an in-person hearing Sunday.

NHL is protecting their assests. NHLPA is protecting their players. They both have their own agendas.

Neither one is doing a good job of it when you have good players sidelined with concussions.

This is the kind of trash they like in Tampa. Now that it's being done to someone other than us, maybe the NHL will have to take notice and do something about it:

Nesterov should clearly be suspended. But let's see if the NHL actually does anything against one of its hype machines.

That hit is worth at least 20 games but I know it won't happen. He'll probably get 2.

The NHL is basically condoning the violence/dirty plays. Since it appears they can't punish offenders because of the CBA they should start fining teams a hefty amount for their players dirty deeds. Personally, I think the league is just digging themselves a bigger hole when it comes to the pending concussion lawsuit. They're basically showing they don't care about player safety.
