In game 1 between the L.A. Kings and San Jose Sharks, Kings center Jarret Stoll left the game with an injury after being struck in the head by none other than Marian Hossa’s┬ábest friend, Raffi Torres.

According to reports, Torres will be having an in-person hearing with Brendan Shanahan.

Requesting the hearing in person gives the league the option to suspend Torres for more than five games, but doesn’t necessarily mean a suspension of that length is guaranteed. Perhaps Shanahan just wants to sit down and catch up with his old pal. After all, they’ve spent a decent amount of time together in the past. Based on Shanahan’s remarkable consistency, I’d guess he’ll suspend Torres for anywhere from 0 to 40 games.

Not much has been disclosed about Stoll’s injury, as is standard during the playoffs, but we’ll be keeping an eye on Erin Andrews’ twitter account for any slip-ups on her boyfriend’s condition.
