Did San Jose Sharks GM Doug Wilson Try To Pull A Fast One In Statement On Torres Suspension?

COMMENTARY: Over the last few weeks, the Los Angeles Kings have been involved in two incidents involving blows to the head of a player. Both times, the player who was hit suffered an injury, and in each case, a player was suspended. Perhaps even worse, both incidents have shined a bright light on the fact that it isn’t just fans who don’t know the rules, but apparently, National Hockey League players, coaches and general managers don’t either, and the fault for that falls squarely on the shoulders of the NHL.

LOS ANGELES AND EL SEGUNDO, CA — Almost one month ago, Los Angeles Kings winger Dustin Brown was suspended two games, without pay, for elbowing Minnesota Wild forward Jason Pominville at 10:04 of the second period in a game at Minnesota on April 23, a 2-1 Wild victory.

No penalty was called on the play.
