The Carolina Hurricanes have extended a professional tryout offer to veteran winger Raffi Torres, reports TSN’s Aaron Ward.

Torres, 34, last played in the NHL in the 2013-14 season with the San Jose Sharks. He missed the entire 2014-15 campaign with a knee injury.

The agitating winger was then handed a 41-game ban following a vicious head check to Anaheim‘s Jakob Silfverberg in a preseason game last year. It marked the longest suspension in league history.

Upon his return, Torres suited up for six games with the Sharks’ AHL affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda, before being dealt to the Toronto Maple Leafs in February as part of a salary cap move to acquire defenseman Roman Polak.
