Martin Havlat Sharks

The San Jose Sharks put oft-injured forward Martin Havlat on IR Tuesday, calling up Freddie Hamilton from AHL Worcester in the process.

Havlat, who missed almost all of October recovering from groin surgery, has had a forgettable campaign thus far. He has just three goals and eight points in 22 games, been the subject of trade rumors and seems to be the odd man out in San Jose’s forward group, often getting shuttled around by head coach Todd McLellan.

The 32-year-old Czech forward has already missed two games with the ailment — against Phoenix and Anaheim — and won’t play tonight when the Sharks take on the Ducks.

    Seriously, Havlat is injured? He’s usually as solid as a mack truck.

    *sigh* Poor Marty….he was one of my favorites when he was with the Blackhawks, but he just can’t seem to stay healthy. He did have a fine year in 08-09 until one of Kronwall’s patented crushers knocked him the f*** out in the playoffs.
