Sharks F Torres out with ACL injury

The SportsXchange

San Jose Sharks forward Raffi Torres could miss anywhere from six weeks to four months with an ACL injury.

Torres was injured during Friday night's preseason game against the Anaheim Ducks when Torres collided with Anaheim's Emerson Etem.

He could be out six weeks if he does not have surgery. But if the Sharks determine that Torres needs surgery, he will miss three to four months. The team is expected to make a decision later this week.

Torre had six points in 11 games with just four penalty minutes last season after getting acquired from the Phoenix Coyotes. He was signed to a three-year, $6 million contract extension earlier this summer.
