SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- San Jose Sharks forward Raffi Torres will miss the start of the upcoming season after undergoing surgery for an infection in his previously surgically repaired right knee.

General manager Doug Wilson announced the news Wednesday, about one month before the start of training camp.

Torres initially got hurt last preseason and underwent surgery for a torn ACL. He returned in late February and played five games before sitting out the rest of the regular season. Torres played hurt through a seven-game, first-round loss to Los Angeles in the playoffs.

Torres had three goals and two assists in the regular season and two goals and one assist in the playoffs.
