Statement from Raffi Torres

by Staff Writer / San Jose Sharks

San Jose Sharks forward Raffi Torres today released the following statement:

“I accept the 41-game suspension handed down to me by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety. I worked extremely hard over the last two years following reconstructive knee surgery to resume my NHL career, and this is the last thing I wanted to happen. I am disappointed I have put myself in a position to be suspended again. I sincerely apologize to Jakob for the hit that led to this suspension, and I’m extremely thankful that he wasn’t seriously injured as a result of the play. I also want to apologize to my Sharks teammates and the organization.”

Following Torres' comments, Sharks GM Doug Wilson released this statement.
