The Sharks made a couple roster moves today in anticipation of Raffi Torres' return. Dainius Zubrus was placed on Injured Reserve, freeing up a roster spot for the forward who has been out of the lineup for most of his tenure in San Jose.
Torres just finished serving his 41-game suspension for a hit in a preseason game against the Ducks. Peter DeBoer had this to say: "We're proud of how hard Raffi has worked over the last four months to continue to rehab from his injury. … We know Raffi can be a very effective player for our team and this assignment will allow him to get back into game shape."
