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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
