Sharks’ Torres injured in ‘complete accident’ collision with Ducks’ Etem

Sep 21, 2013, 12:10 AM EDT

San Jose Sharks forward Raffi Torres went to the locker room after a collision with Anaheim Ducks forward Emerson Etem during Friday’s exhibition game.

He did not return for the third period.

“He’s being checked by the medical staff and when we know something, we’ll let you know,” Sharks head coach Todd McLellan said Friday night, as per the San Jose Mercury News.

“It’s obviously not a good situation for either player, Etem or Torres. A complete accident, too. We hope they’ll both be well and ready to play.”

    Perhaps Torres is finally learning about this little old thing called revenge that that raggity old b!tch Karma can dish out. She never forgets, Raffi! Somewhere Hossa is sleeping well tonight.

    Next time Torres faces off against our Kings, he’ll be ‘taken’ to a lot more than some dressing room !

      You’re lucky he got Shanahaned in the playoffs last year. You wouldn’t have advanced beyond the second round.

        Because he would have been around to take out Quick after Stoll? Pretty funny you think not having Torres was why the Snarks lost.

    Not having torres helped the sharks lose. So did the bs delay of game penalty. It’s all good though, new season.

    Chanceoffluery, not sure if you are a pens fan but if you are…matt cooke. Players change man.

      Matt Cooke isn’t even a Penguin anymore. Cooke said he’d take a paycut to stay here and they still let him walk. You can probably go through any team’s history and find a dirty player. Matt Cooke’s era in Pittsburgh is over.

      That “change” bs is laughable because Torres didn’t change at all after the Hossa hit. Matt Cooke has gone 2.5 years without being suspended again. Torres was suspended for 6 games 4 months into the next season for the same exact hit to the head on Jarret Stoll in the playoffs. I would have said the same thing about Matt Cooke, too. If you are going to be a borderline player than I have no sympathy for you. Sometimes a taste of their own medicine is exactly what players like that need before they actually change. Torres needs to prove he’s actually changed before getting the benefit of the doubt. You act like anybody was giving Matt Cooke the benefit of the doubt 2 or 3 games after coming back from the McDonagh suspension. People still don’t give Cooke the benefit of the doubt and it’s been 2.5 years. Torres can say he’s changed all he wants but actions speak louder than words. His actions after the Hossa hit insinuated that his words were complete bs. You can’t just fix that type of reputation by saying your sorry and behaving for 2 or 3 games.

    Out of all the players on the sharks, I’m glad it was Torres.
