Phoenix Coyotes' Raffi Torres fined $2,500 for hit on Colorado's Jan Hejda

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres has been fined US$2,500 by the NHL for a hit on Colorado Avalanche defenceman Jan Hejda.

The hit came at 18:22 of the second period in Colorado's 3-2 over the Coyotes on Thursday night. Torres lowered his shoulder and appeared to hit Hejda on the side of the head.

Hejda lay on the ice for about a minute before being helped to the locker-room.

Torres was not penalized on the play, and infuriated Avalanche coach Joe Sacco screamed at the officials.

He's able to play now, we just want to see other guys. We know what he can do.
