Torres, 31, has scored five goals and tallied seven assists in 28 games this season.

A veteran of 11 NHL seasons, Torres is known for the 21-game suspension he received after leveling Chicago's Marian Hossa during the first round of last year's Stanley Cup Playoffs. Torres has a reputation for being a bit of an agitator, but also brings some offensive skill to the ice.

Torres, who originally signed with the Coyotes before the 2011-12 season, scored 38 points for the team and accumulated 96 PIMs.

The Coyotes are currently 15-15-6, and with 36 points sit on the outside of the playoff picture looking in.
