Sharks Martin Havlat Out For 'Extended Period' After Surgery On Torn Hamstring

The San Jose Sharks were dealt a tough blow on Wednesday as right winger Martin Havlat will miss a extended period of time after having surgery on a torn hamstring, according to CSN Bay Area.

Havlat suffered the freak injury last Saturday coming off the bench in a 3-2 victory against the Edmonton Oilers, and will have to wait and see how it heals up before a time table is made for his return. General manager Doug Wilson spoke about the injury at a Wednesday press conference:

"The good news," Wilson said, is that the injury is "not as as bad as the team initially thought."

Team doctors feel that Havlat will be able to make a full recovery before the last stretch of the season and into the playoffs.

Havlat, 30, has 15 points for San Jose this season with two goals and 13 assists.
