The last game he played was April 30, 2014, during the playoffs against the Kings. He had three points and 18 penalty minutes in the seven-game series. "It looks good for him to be back in September," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said. "He's progressing really well." Jun 20 - 8:00 PM

The feisty forward had his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee completely removed at the end of November. As David Pollak of the Mercury News says, Torres is likely still building strength around his knee. Torres has yet to play this season because of the knee injury, which also hampered him last season.

Raffi Torres (knee) isn't expected to return before New Years Eve.

That's not to suggest that Torres will return soon after the New Year, just that it would be very surprising to see him play in December. He was limited to just five contests last season and hasn't played yet in 2014-15.

Raffi Torres has had the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee completely removed.

Torres still hopes to resume skating in a week or so. "People have helped me along the way and I'm hoping that I can get back and start helping this team out the way I know I can," Torres said. "At the end of the day, I haven't played in a couple years, but I feel good. Mentally, I feel refreshed." More accurately, Torres has been limited to just five games since the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

Raffi Torres (knee) is back in San Jose after rehabbing in his hometown of Toronto.

Raffi Torres is projected to miss the first few months of the 2014-15 season after he suffered a setback in his surgically repaired right knee.

He developed an infection after he underwent a cleanup procedure once the Sharks were knocked out of the playoffs. Torres missed most of the previous season while recovering from a torn ACL and it looks like he'll miss most of the coming campaign as well.

Raffi Torres certainly was not at his best in the playoffs.

He struggled as he never fully recovered from a torn ACL that required surgery and sidelined him for all but five games during the regular season. "At one point there I was just skating around and was just kind of like, 'What am I doing on the ice right now?' But hey, that's just part of it. You just had to be out there," Torres said. "I'll get healthy this summer and come back, come back stronger." Torres plans on resting his knee for a month or two.

He has also amassed 11 hits. Torres had the crowd chanting his name during Game 2 and he didn't know how to react when asked about it afterward. "It's nice. I don't know what to say," he said.

Raffi Torres (knee) is probable for Game 1 on Thursday.

Torres was on the ice with the Sharks on Wednesday. "Today, he looked even better. You can probably interpret that as him being ready to go," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said of Torres. "Now, with that being said, I haven't sat with him, I haven't met with him after the skate today yet." If Torres dresses, it will probably be as a bottom-six forward.
