Sharks' Torres faces hearing for illegal check
San Jose Sharks forward Raffi Torres will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Thursday for a hit on the Los Angeles Kings' Jarret Stoll.

San Jose Sharks forward Raffi Torres will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety at the NHL's New York office Thursday for a hit on Jarret Stoll of the Los Angeles Kings in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinal series on Tuesday. He is suspended pending the outcome of the hearing.

Torres was offered the opportunity for an in-person hearing as required by provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for any suspension that can exceed five games.

Torres received a minor penalty for charging on the hit, which occurred at 19:02 of the second period. Stoll did not return to the game.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: illegal check to the head. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

The Kings won the game 2-0. Game 2 of the series is Thursday in Los Angeles.
