Sharks Fined $100,000

Sharks Fined $100,000, The San Jose Sharks have been fined $100,000 for comments made by general manager Doug Wilson regarding the suspension of forward Raffi Torres.

The NHL suspended Torres for the remainder of San Jose’s second-round series against the defending champion Los Angeles Kings after a hit on Jarret Stoll in Game 1—something that Wilson felt was an overreaction by the league and simply a result of Torres’ past decisions influencing his current punishment.

According to, Wilson addressed the suspension in an official statement on Friday:

Upon review of the incident, it is abundantly clear that this was a clean hockey hit. … Comparing the facts of this incident against the actual wording of Rule 48.1, it appears that the NHL has not only made an inappropriate application of this rule but is trying to make an example out of a player who is being judged on past events.
