Raffi Torres Hits Brent Seabrook: Canucks Winger Nails Blackhawks Player In Head (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Vancouver's Raffi Torres crushed Blackhawks defensemen Brent Seabrook with a vicious head shot in the middle of the second period of the Canucks' 3-2 victory in Game 3 on Sunday.

As Seabrook slowly skated toward the puck behind the Blackhawks net, Torres attacked from the left side and nailed him in the head. Seabrook immediately fell onto the ice and the Canucks winger was given two minutes for interference.

Seabrook went to the locker room, but returned in the third period.

Chicago coach Joel Quenneville called the hit "brutal" after the game and said that the referees should have ruled it a major penalty. Scroll down to watch the video.
