San Jose, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Jose Sharks revealed on Wednesday that forward Raffi Torres was forced to undergo another surgery on his right knee.

"Raffi recently underwent a surgical procedure in Toronto to alleviate an infection in his previously surgically repaired right knee," said Sharks GM Doug Wilson in a statement. "The procedure involved removing the graft previously implanted in his repaired knee in September 2013. Raffi has started a rehabilitation phase, but will need to repeat the surgical procedure to repair the ACL damage suffered on Sept. 20, 2013. We expect Raffi to return to the team during the 2014-15 season but no official timeline for his return is being set at this time."

Torres was signed to a three-year deal in the 2013 offseason. He recovered well enough from the initial surgery to appear in five regular-season games and all seven of San Jose's historic first-round defeat to the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings.

The 32-year-old Torres is a veteran of 12 NHL campaigns with the Islanders, Oilers, Blue Jackets, Sabres, Canucks, Coyotes and Sharks.
