Sharks Increase Ice-Time For Torres
Torres played a season-high 13:20 in Thursday's win over Pittsburgh. He also added two shots, four hits, and two blocked shots.Torres is working his way into more ice time as the team doesn't want to push him too hard in his return. They want him healthy for the playoffs where they'll need him to be their most consistent grinder. He's playing very well, but temper your expectations on how soon he'll be running at full throttle.
|So, how exactly does Groundhog Day go again? Yes, Raffi Torres ended his second straight season with yet another playoff suspension. This surprises no one, as thats the reputation Torres has cultivated. But that reputation hides the fact that the winger isn't just a third line forward who can protect some young talent while shutting down the opposing line. He has the ability to score, set up plays and be an offensive presence ... as long as his head stays screwed on the right way. His new three-year contract says that the Sharks' front office sees this, too. And Torres might get playing time on one of the top two lines as he did when Martin Havlat was injured last year, so there's a possibility that his production could inch toward that half-point-per-game range that he's done once before in his career. Torres isn't an All Star and he's not well-known for his fantasy production, but he's worth keeping an eye on as the Sharks' depth chart falls into place during the preseason. (Updated 8/12/13) |
