Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa was knocked unconscious and taken off the ice on a stretcher during the first period of Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinal series following a brutal hit from Raffi Torres of the Phoenix Coyotes.
Torres has just been suspended indefinitely and faces a Friday hearing with NHL officials in New York. The hearing was originally planned for today (Wednesday) but was moved at the request of the player and NHL Players Association.
Mossa was released from the hospital late last night. The Chicago Blackhawks have not indicated whether or not Hossa will return this season.
Phoenix leads the series 2-1 with Game 4 to be held in Chicago tonight.
