New York, NY (Sports Network) - San Jose forward Raffi Torres has been suspended for the remainder of the Sharks' second-round series against the Los Angeles Kings.

The punishment stems from Torres' illegal hit to the head of Kings forward Jarret Stoll during the second period of Los Angeles' 2-0 Game 1 win on Tuesday.

Torres, who was assessed a minor penalty for charging on the play, is no stranger to being suspended. He received a 25-game ban, which was later reduced to 21, during last year's West quarterfinals for a devastating hit on Chicago's Marian Hossa.

The Kings and Sharks play Game 2 Thursday night.
