Marian Hossa Injury: Forward Leaves On A Stretcher After Hit By Phoenix's Raffi Torres (Video)

Chicago Blackhawks star forward Marian Hossa exited on a stretcher during the first period of the Blackhawks' Game 3 matchup against the Phoenix Coyotes. Hossa was leveled by Phoenix's Raffi Torres, who left his feet to label Hossa on a seemingly dirty hit.

Torres was not given a penalty for the hit. During the first intermission, Blackhawks announcer Eddie Olczyk, a respected voice in the hockey community, said Torres should be given a 10 game suspension for the hit.

Before today's game, Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw was suspended three games for his hit on Phoenix goalie Mike Smith. It'll be interesting to see how disciplinary chief Brendan Shanahan deals with Torres.
