Raffi Torres has ACL surgery
The Sharks were counting on Torres to provide energy and physical play this season. His acquisition late last season provided a needed spark to the team before he was suspended for the final six playoff games for an illegal hit on Los Angeles Kings forward Jarret Stoll.
The Sharks signed Torres to a three-year, $6 million contract in June.
