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.

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 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.

Apr 17 - 6:04 PM

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.
Apr 16 - 6:23 PM

Raffi Torres (knee) could return to the San Jose lineup as early as Wednesday.

Torres has missed most of the season as he missed the first part of the season (59 games) after undergoing off-season knee surgery and then tweaked the knee again four weeks ago. He played only five games this season thus far but he has scored three times. He is a very nice late playoff pickup if you think the Sharks are going deep into the playoffs.

Mar 24 - 8:29 AM

Raffi Torres did not play Saturday night against the Capitals.

It was the seventh consecutive game he missed due to a right knee injury but he is getting closer to a return to action. Torres missed the game more due to generally soreness in the knee area so it seems it is more of a conditioning issue than anything else. Torres indicated that he could play if it were absolutely necessary but there was no need to rush things. Torres could be a player some time next week. Stay tuned for further updates.
