Sharks forward Havlat out up to 8 weeks
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)
San Jose general manager Doug Wilson said the team was prepared for the worst after Havlat injured himself jumping over the Sharks' bench during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers.
Havlat, acquired in a trade from the Minnesota Wild during the offseason, scored his second goal of the season against the Oilers and had recorded three points in his last two games.
Wilson said he expected Havlat to return for the stretch run.
Forward Benn Ferriero was recalled from Worcester to take Havlat's spot on the roster.
