Raffi Torres Suspension: Ruling From NHL Will Come On Saturday

Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres has already missed one playoff game after an illegal hit to Chicago's Marian Hossa -- a hit that sent Hossa to the hospital. On Friday afternoon, Torres met with the NHL to discuss the matter, but the league will not make a ruling until Saturday.

The NHL said Friday that it will not announce it's decision regarding Torres' suspension until Saturday. Torres had an in-person hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan at noon on Friday at the league's New York offices.
