Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com reports the rugged forward will be out 3-4 months after having surgery to repair the torn ligament. Sharks GM Doug Wilson offered an encouraging update.
“Raffi’s surgery went very well and we look forward to having him back in our line-up later this season,” said Wilson.
The new diagnosis puts the Sharks in a bit of a hole as Torres had been getting spins with their top two lines for a bit in preseason. While he’s normally a third line agitator, he’s tried to apply more of his skill in San Jose.
Now the Sharks will potentially add Anthony Stewart into the fold to fill his spot in the lineup.
