Sharks Injury Update: Raffi Torres will miss start of next season

The San Jose Sharks have announced that forward Raffi Torres will miss the start of the upcoming season after undergoing surgery.

Torres underwent surgery to alleviate an infection on his right knee. During the 2013-2014 season, Torres had surgery to repair his ACL that he tore during the preseason.

According to Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson, "Raffi recently underwent a surgical procedure in Toronto to alleviate an infection in his previously surgically repaired right knee".

The procedure involved removing the graft previously implanted in his repaired knee in September 2013.

"Raffi has started a rehabilitation phase, but will need to repeat the surgical procedure to repair the ACL damage suffered on Sept. 20, 2013. We expect Raffi to return to the team during the 2014-15 season, but no official timeline for his return is being set at this time."

Torres returned to the ice in February last season following his knee injurt. He played five regular games, but had to sit out the rest of the season. In those five games, he had three goals and two assists.

He also played all seven playoff games with the Sharks before the team was eliminated by the Los Angeles Kings. In those seven games, he had two goals and one assist.
