Torres appealing length of 25-game suspension

TORONTO (AP) - Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres is appealing the length of his 25-game suspension.

Torres was penalized last month for a hit to the head on Chicago forward Marian Hossa.

Torres and the NHL Players' Association will meet with Commissioner Gary Bettman about the length of the suspension, but not the ban itself. The NHLPA says there's no date set for the meeting.

Hossa was taken off the ice on a stretcher in Game 3 and didn't return to the first-round series that Phoenix won in six games.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
