SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson issued the following statement today regarding forward Raffi Torres:
"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."
