Sharks’ Havlat knocked out of Game 1

May 1, 2013, 11:52 PM EDT


San Jose Sharks forward Martin Havlat left Wednesday’s Game 1 Western Conference quarterfinal game against Vancouver midway through the first period, and has yet to return.

Havlat, 32, played five shifts for 3:16 of ice time before retiring to the dressing room around the nine minutes mark.

He wasn’t on the San Jose bench to start the second period.

Prior to getting hurt, the Czech winger had been skating on one of the Sharks’ best lines as of late alongside Patrick Marleau and Logan Couture, and was robbed by Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo just three minutes into the contest.

No word yet on what type of injury Havlat may have suffered.

    Im surprised TJ is still in after taking an elbow in the back of the head.

      me too although it was a weird elbow. It looked like the canuck player tried at the last possible moment to pull up and tried turning to hit the boards rather than the player and his elbow drilled TJ’s head into the boards.

      Should have been a penalty, could be a 1 game, but shouldn’t be much more.
