NEW YORK, N.Y. - Phoenix Coyotes winger Raffi Torres has been suspended indefinitely, pending an in-person discipline hearing, after a hit that sent Chicago Blackhawks winger Marian Hossa to hospital.
The hearing will be held Friday at the NHL's New York offices and is required for Brendan Shanahan to hand out a suspension longer than five games.
Torres delivered a late hit to Hossa in the first period of Tuesday's game and wasn't penalized on the play.
Replays showed him leaving his feet as he launched into Hossa.
The Blackhawks star was taken from the ice on a stretcher and suffered an upper-body injury. No timetable has been set for his return.
Torres will sit out Game 4 of the series Thursday before attending his hearing with the league.
Phoenix leads the series 2-1 following a 3-2 overtime win in Game 3.
