Sharks' Torres Proves Value In Limited Time

News: Raffi Torres assisted on the Sharks' lone goal Monday, adding 12 penalty minutes and a plus-1 rating in a loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Raffi Torres only played 8:24 on Monday -- not far off from his series average of 9:30 -- but he continues to prove his value in limited time. The veteran winger has two goals, an assist, three blocked shots and 24 hits in six games.

Sharks' Torres Scores Again

News: Raffi Torres scored another goal Sunday, kickstarting a seven-goal rally in a Game 2 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Raffi Torres, who has played seven games this season, has been incredible, netting five goals and two assists in very limited time. It'd be tough to find someone who won't say that Torres should regress to the mean — after all, his shooting percentage in this series is 100 percent — but analysts have been saying that he'll regress since his first game back from injury this season. Bottom line: He's hot right now.

Torres To Play For Sharks In Game 2

News: There wasn't much question if he'd play two straight, but it's now confirmed that Raffi Torres will play for the Sharks in Game 2, according to David Pollak of the Mercury News.
Analysis: Raffi Torres scored the game-winner in Game 1, his return after some knee soreness. He's barely played this season, but when he has, he's been excellent. The only thing to be wary of is his playing time. The Sharks are being cautious with his knee. They expect a long playoff run and want Torres healthy throughout. With Torres getting under ten minutes per game, it may be hard for him to keep up the productivity we've seen thus far.

Sharks' Torres Scores In Return

News: Raffi Torres (knee soreness) scored the game-winning goal in his return to the ice for Thursday's Game 1 against the Kings.
Analysis: It was hardly a climactic game-winner, as it gave the Sharks a 4-0 lead in a game they would ultimately win 6-3. Raffi Torres was also quite active defensively, logging a team-high seven hits in his 8:42 of ice time.

Sharks' Torres Will Play In Game 1

News: Raffi Torres (knee soreness) will play in Thursday's Game 1 against the Kings, Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com reports.
Analysis: After missing the first five months of the regular season following knee surgery, Raffi Torres only played in five games out of the Olympic break before soreness in the knee resurfaced. After taking the rest of the regular season to rest up, he increased his activity this week and looks set to play on the fourth line Thursday.

No Decision On Sharks' Torres Yet

News: Raffi Torres will be a game-time decision for Game 1 of the Sharks' series with the Kings, according to David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News.
Analysis: Raffi Torres said he was feeling better at Tuesday's practice, but neither he or coach Todd McLellan would tip their hand on his status for Thursday's game.

SJ's Torres Could Be Ready For Playoffs

News: Raffi Torres, who has been out with soreness in a surgically repaired knee since March 8, could be ready to go for Game 1 against the Kings, according to the Mercury News.
Analysis: This would be big for the Sharks, who could use the size against a tough LA team. Raffi Torres played five games total this season and was strong in them, totaling three goals and two assists on very limited playing time. If healthy, he could be a big factor in round 1.

Coyotes' Torres Will Not Play Saturday

News: Raffi Torres (soreness) will not play in Saturday's game against the Predators, David Pollak of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Raffi Torres will sit out again as he deals with lingering soreness, which is believed to be primarily in his knee. While Torres will sit out Saturday, he could return to action next Wednesday against the Ducks.

Sharks' Torres Out Tuesday

News: Raffi Torres (soreness) will again be out of the lineup as the Sharks take on the Oilers on Tuesday, according to Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News.
Analysis: This will be the 12th straight game Raffi Torres has missed after returning from his ACL injury after the Olympic break. It seems clear now that he returned too soon and that another return remains up in the air. The team isn't speculating on when he'll be back in the lineup.

Torres Still Out For Sharks

News: Raffi Torres (soreness) will sit again on Saturday with the Capitals in town, according to the Mercury News.
Analysis: After playing five of six games after the break, Raffi Torres has sat out the last seven. He's denying that he returned too soon after tearing his ACL, but he's still experiencing "general soreness." He hopes to return for a couple of games prior to the playoffs, which can be read this way for fantasy owners: It's probably time to scour the waiver wire.

Sharks Rule Torres Out Indefinitely

News: Raffi Torres (knee) is being viewed as out indefintely, CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz reports.
Analysis: After playing in five games following a return from ACL surgery, Raffi Torres will now miss his sixth straight game Thursday and isn't certain when he might rejoin the lineup. The forward denied that he's experiencing a setback in his recovery, but rather, persistent soreness that has compromised his style of play. It's probably worthwhile for fantasy owners to let him go on the waiver wire until a return looks more imminent.

SJ's Torres Likely Out Tuesday

News: Based on morning skate, it appears that Raffi Torres will be out of the lineup once again on Tuesday, according to Kevin Kurz of CSN.
Analysis: Raffi Torres continues to have some lingering soreness from the ACL injury that has kept him sidelined most of the season. The team doesn't want to push him too hard as they'll need his grit in the playoffs. Though it's not clear whether he's had a setback or they're being extra cautious. Either way, keep an eye on his status if you're keeping him on your team. It could change on a dime.

Sharks' Torres Not Ready

News: Though Raffi Torres (general soreness) participated in warm-ups Sunday, he was scratched from the Sharks' contest against the Rangers.
Analysis: Raffi Torres last suited up for the Sharks on March 8, but his participation in warmups Sunday suggests that he has a shot to suit up Tuesday against the Panthers.

Sharks' Torres Out Again Friday

News: Raffi Torres (general soreness) will not play Friday vs. the Islanders, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Sharks' Torres Likely To Sit Again Thursday

News: Raffi Torres (general soreness) is not likely to play Thursday vs. the Blue Jackets, David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: Raffi Torres didn't take part in line rushes during morning skate as he continues to deal with some soreness after his first few games coming back from knee surgery. Coach Todd McLellan said the soreness wasn't unexpected, and added that Torres could receive rest on occasion to aid his recovery. There's a good chance he'll still be available for Friday's game vs. the Islanders.

Sharks' Torres A Game-Time Decision Tuesday

News: Raffi Torres (general soreness) is a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest vs. the Maple Leafs, CSNBayArea.com's Kevin Kurz reports.
Analysis: Raffi Torres did not take part in Tuesday's morning skate with coach Todd McLellan stating that the forward was "a little bit sore." McLellan said the injury didn't really stem entirely from his knee surgery earlier this season, but it doesn't sound like he would miss action beyond Tuesday if he does indeed sit out vs. Toronto.

Sharks' Torres (General Soreness) Will Sit Tuesday

News: Raffi Torres (general soreness) is not in the Sharks' lineup on Tuesday night, the Toronto Sun reports

SJ's Torres Finds Physicality, Keeps Scoring

News: Raffi Torres had an assist and seven minutes in penalties in Saturday's shutout of the Canadiens.
Analysis: Raffi Torres has found his physical game over the last two games. He got into a fight on Saturday and was a big reason for Thursday's come from behind win. His minutes are still low at just 10:22 on average, but that will rise. The surprise has been his continued offensive contributions. He has three goals and two assists through five games this season.

Sharks Increase Ice Time For Torres

News: Raffi Torres played a season-high 13:20 in Thursday's win over Pittsburgh. He also added two shots, four hits, and two blocked shots.
Analysis: Raffi 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.

Torres Continues Torrid Pace For Sharks

News: Raffi Torres had an assist and three shots in Tuesday's OT loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Raffi Torres now has three goals and an assist in his first three games of the season. He's a plus-3 and is averaging two shots per night. He's producing more than was expected after his return from injury. The downside here is that the coaching staff is still using him sparingly. He played 10:08 on Tuesday and that's the most game action he's seen yet.

Sharks' Torres: Three Goals In Two Games

News: Raffi Torres scored another goal and was plus-1 in just 9:26 of ice time during Sunday's win over New Jersey.
Analysis: The team is slowly working Raffi Torres back into regular action. His playing time has been limited and the team gave him the night off during the back end of a back-to-back Friday. Nonetheless, he's looked sharp in limited playing time, with three goals in two games since his return.

Torres Doesn't Play Friday For Sharks

News: Raffi Torres was a healthy scratch in Friday's loss to the Sharks.

Torres Tallies Two In Season Debut

News: Raffi Torres scored twice, adding a hit and two shots in just 7:54 of ice time in Thursday's 7-3 win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Raffi Torres didn't see much ice time in his season debut, but he was a strong skater and tough to play against, and produced a surprising amount of offense. You can expect a little more playing time as he shakes the rust off, but don't expect this kind of production to happen often.

Torres To Make Season Debut For Sharks

News: Raffi Torres took line rushes on the third line during morning skate Thursday and will make his season debut, according to NHL.com.
Analysis: Raffi Torres presence is a bigger deal for the Sharks than for fantasy. He's a bruising winger with the ability to score, but his numbers are never great and he may need a few games to shake off the rust. He also carries baggage with him as he's prone to dirty hits and suspensions.

Sharks' Torres Could Be Back Thursday

News: Raffi Torres (knee) could be activated from injured reserve to play in Thursday's game against the Flyers, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Analysis: The Sharks created roster room Monday by waiving Bracken Kearns, which could open up a spot for Raffi Torres or fellow injured forward Logan Couture to return to the lineup. The Sharks said over the weekend that Torres was still probably a week away from returning, so it would seem more likely that Couture takes Kearns' spot, while Torres sets his sights on rejoining the lineup Friday against the Sabres.
