Martin Havlat Expected To Be Out An "Extended Period of Time"; Benn Ferriero Recalled


According to Mark Emmons Twitter account, the San Jose Sharks will be without Martin Havlat for Wednesday night's game against Tampa Bay. Todd McLellan told the assembled reporters today that Havlat would miss at least two games, while GM Doug Wilson said he expected it to be "an extended period of time." Havlat injured his left leg while coming over the boards during Saturday's 3-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche. He was seen leaving the building with a walking stick. There is no official medical update that details the exact injury he experienced. In his stead will be Benn Ferriero, who has been recalled from the Worcester Sharks. Fans in San Jose should be no stranger to Ferriero's game, as he has played 69 regular seasona and playoff games with the big club over the course of the his career. According to our calculations via CapGeek, Benn Ferriero has only one game remaining before he has to pass through waivers to go to and from Worcester. In other words, if he plays one more game, he would either remain in San Jose or have to pass through waivers to be demoted. Ferriero skated on the top line with Thornton and Pavelski at today's practice.
