Raffi Torres could be suspended for his hit Saturday night on Jakob Silfverberg.
Silfverberg was hit in the head by Torres in Saturday night's contest and was helped off the ice. Torres picked up a match penalty for the hit. "Same player every year," Ducks center Ryan Kesler said. "I played with the guy (Torres). He needs to learn how to hit. That has no part in our game any more. He came from across the ice and only made contact with his head. Obviously hope Silfvy’s alright." Stay tuned. Oct 4 - 4:28 AM

Raffi Torres played his first game of the season on Friday.

Torres has missed most of the last two seasons with injuries, specifically a torn ACL in 2013 and subsequent knee surgery last season. As a result he has played only 14 games in the last two seasons so do not expect a lot this year from the soon to be 34-year-old.

Raffi Torres will take a cautious approach during training camp after another knee surgery.

He had surgery in late February in a second attempt to repair his ACL that was torn in 2013. Torres also had ACL surgery in 2008. He has been skating in preparation for camp. Sharks coach Peter DeBoer is excited about how far he's come. "He's heading in the right direction, is probably the best way that I can term it," DeBoer said. "We'll see. I think we're all cautiously optimistic."

Raffi Torres (knee) is likely to be good to go for the start of 2015-16 training camp.

Torres had multiple knee surgeries last season and consequently did not play. He is now four months removed from the second surgery to repair his ACL. 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."

Raffi Torres has undergone surgery to put in a new ACL.

He had it removed at the end of November and the procedure was delayed to make sure Torres did not have any further infections. He is projected to return for training camp next season, according to GM Doug Wilson.

Raffi Torres (knee) has not begun to skate yet.

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.

There is no timetable for his return as Torres was expected to miss at least the first few months of the 2014-15 season after he suffered a setback in his rehab in August when an infection set into his surgically repaired right knee. Consider him out indefinitely at this time.

Raffi Torres is slated to undergo surgery on his knee later this month.

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.

Raffi Torres has contributed goals in back-to-back games for the Sharks to open the playoffs.

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. "It's kind of weird." He missed most of the regular season because of a knee injury, but he's making an impact an early impact in the playoffs.
