Marian Hossa Injury: Raffi Torres Suspension Could Be Longer Than Six Games

Though Raffi Torres of the Phoenix Coyotes went unpenalized for his first period hit on Marian Hossa that left the Chicago Blackhawks star motionless on the ice, it appearing increasingly likely that he the NHL isn't going to let him off as easy. Today the Chicago Tribune's Chris Kuc reported that the NHL will meet with Torres face-to-face, which means that the length of his suspension (if one is handed down) could extend past six games.

NHL disciplinary czar Brendan Shanahan has handed out a whopping eight suspensions in the 2012 postseason thus far, with the longest going to Arron Asham of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who was docked four games on Tuesday.
