Raffi Torres of San Jose has been suspended for the remainder of the Sharks' second-round series with Los Angeles after targeting Jarrett Stoll's head with this check.
Torres - then with Phoenix - got suspended 25 games (later reduced to 21) during last year's playoffs for targeting the head of Chicago's Marian Hossa with a more vicious and malicious hit.
Torres pledged to clean up his act after the Hossa episode, and took only 17 minutes in penalties during the regular season. But now, this.
No one ever bought a ticket to see Torres play. At what point does the NHL get rid of Torres for good?
Matt Cooke has cleaned up his act. But at some point, Cooke will relapse. Bet on it. Guys like that DON'T CHANGE.
