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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
