Martin Havlat is a fragile hockey player. We all know that, especially Sharks fans. Hopefully the Sharks themselves were prepared for him to break down, because it sounds like they might be without him for a while.
Havlat left during the first period of Wednesday's game in Vancouver and hasn't returned. His return is questionable, but don't count on it. He missed the final game of the regular season with an unspecified injury and the Sharks will probably want to keep him off the ice just in case. Raffi Torres has replaced him on the second line with Logan Couture and Patrick Marleau in the meantime.
