Share on Facebook

Raffi Torres calls it a career.

After 15 seasons in the NHL, Torres racked up 137 goals and 123 assists for 260 points but the Toronto native will be remembered for the grit in his game. In 635 games, Torres has been on the penalty box for 497 minutes. He has also been fined 3 times and been suspended 5 for a total of 74 games.

His biggest suspension came last year on a preseason game when he gave a late hit to the head of Jakob Silfverberg. The NHL Department of Player Safety gave Torres a complete half season of suspension (41 games), at the beggining of the 2015-2016 season. Raffi didn't play in the NHL that season and pretty much ended his professional career
