Wednesday, 04.03.2013 / 4:47 PM / News

SAN JOSE, California - San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the team has acquired left wing Raffi Torres from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for a third round selection (Florida's pick, previously acquired from the New York Rangers) in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Torres has posted 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 28 games with the Coyotes this season.

"Raffi is a physical presence who plays with speed and will help bolster our forward lines," said Wilson. "He is a player you love to have on your team but hate to play against."

Torres, 31, is a veteran of 619 NHL games with the New York Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, Columbus Blue Jackets, Buffalo Sabres, Vancouver Canucks and Coyotes, notching 249 points (132 goals, 117 assists) and 486 penalty minutes.

In 56 Stanley Cup Playoff games, he has added 24 points (eight goals, 16 assists) and 60 penalty minutes

The six-foot, 210-pound native of Toronto, Ontario was originally selected by the Islanders in the first round (5th overall) in the 2000 NHL Draft.
