Sharks acquire Raffi Torres from Coyotes
The San Jose Sharks have acquired Raffi Torres from the Phoenix Coyotes for a third-round draft choice.

The San Jose Sharks have acquired forward Raffi Torres from the Phoenix Coyotes for a third-round draft choice.

Torres, 31, has five goals and 12 points in 28 games this season for the Coyotes. He was suspended at the start of the season because of a hit against Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa during the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Torres had at least 14 goals and 26 points in each of the three previous seasons.

For his career, Torres has 132 goals and 249 points in 619 NHL games.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
