Torres (knee) was assigned to AHL San Jose on Saturday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. Torres has been hampered by a nagging knee injury for quite some time, and will need to play himself back into game shape in the AHL in order to get another opportunity with the big club this season. If the 34-year-old winger's knee ailment fails to improve, he could be shut down for the remainder of the 2015-16 campaign.
Torres (knee) has cleared waivers, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports. Torres is no longer listed on the Sharks' active roster, but by clearing waivers, he can now be assigned to the minors. Considering that Torres was suspended for 41 games earlier in preseason and is dealing with a knee injury, it's no wonder that other teams weren't interested in the embattled forward's services off the waiver wire.
Torres was placed on waivers Friday, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie. Torres suffered a setback from his recovery, so him being on waivers may be to get him to AHL San Jose on a little more permanent basis. It appears he needs the reps and practice, but has already been on a conditioning stint in the AHL.
Torres (knee) suffered a "minor setback" and didn't play Monday for the AHL San Jose Barracuda, Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group reports. It's unclear whether the setback Torres suffered was in relation to the knee injury he was dealing with or just his conditioning in general. More information on Torres' status should be made available as he nears a return to the Sharks' lineup.
Torres (knee) has been returned to the Sharks' active roster following a 41-game suspension but will be assigned to AHL San Jose for a conditioning assignment. Torres' long layoff -- combined with a right knee injury that required surgery Dec. 11 -- prompted the Sharks to send him to the minors in order to get him back into game shape. In order for Torres to be added to the active roster, the team decided to place Dainius Zubrus (upper body) on IR.
