Sharks' Torres Undergoes Knee Surgery
Torres underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL Thursday, and he will be out 3-to-4 months, CSN's Kevin Kurz reports.The Sharks took a few days to decide whether or not Torres would need the procedure, but they made their decision and quickly had him go under the knife shortly thereafter. Unless Torres makes a rapid recovery, don't expect to see in action until sometime early next year.
Raffi Torres out six weeks, maybe 3-4 months with ACL injury
Sharks forward Raffi Torre is going to miss at least six weeks, possibly 3-4 months after sustaining an ACL injury on Friday.
Sharks' Torres Out With ACL Injury
Torres will miss a minimum of six weeks with an ACL injury, CSN Bay Area reports.The Sharks need to determine whether surgery is needed to repair the ACL injury suffered in a collision Friday. The reports are that he will miss a minimum of six weeks with this knee injury, but if he needs surgery, he will miss 3-4 months. He was expected to be a third line winger this season with the Sharks, so it does some damage to the team's depth up front.
Sharks' Torres Injured After Collision
Torres appears to have injured his right knee in a collision with Ducks' forward Emerson Etem on Friday night, Dave Pollak of the Mercury News reports.There's still no update on the extent of the injury. Torres was seen leaving the arena Friday with a slight limp and a bandaged knee. Coach Todd McLellan has said their waiting for test results.
|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) |
