Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa will miss Game 5 on Saturday, the team announced Friday (via Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago).  Hossa, who was hit in the head by Coyotes forward Raffi Torres, will be staying behind while the team travels to Phoenix. 

Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said that there is no news to report on Hossa's condition as of Friday morning. 

Hossa was taken to a nearby hospital after the collision with Torres, and was released later Thursday night.  Torres has been suspended indefinitely by the league pending a hearing that occurred at 1 p.m. ET Friday.  NHL senior vice president of player safety and hockey operations Brendan Shanahan will announce on Saturday if there will be any further consequences for Torres' actions.

Quenneville was fined $10,000 for his comments about poor officiating during the game and in regards to the Raffi Torres hit.

Update: Raffi Torres has been suspended for 25 games, according to Renaud P. Lavoie of RDS.
