6: Raffi Torres Injures Marian Hossa

The 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs featured a lot of weird moments, like the then Phoenix Coyotes making it to the conference finals.

Phoenix beat the Chicago Blackhawks in round one. One moment that lives in infamy is Raffi Torres hit on Marian Hossa.

Torres left his feet to deliver a late hit Hossa. Chicago was in the middle of a tough series against the Coyotes and a hit like this left the team scrambling.

This hit will live on in Chicago Blackhawks’ history as one of the worst hits ever. Torres was suspended for 25 games after the incident.

Hossa would go on to miss the rest of the game and playoffs, and recover in the offseason. The silver lining is Marian Hossa and the Blackhawks would go on to win the Stanley Cup the following season.
