SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) San Jose Sharks defenseman Radim Simek needs surgery for torn ligaments in his right knee.
General manager Doug Wilson said Thursday that Simek tore his ACL and MCL after a hit in Tuesday night's win against Winnipeg.
Simek has one goal and eight assists in 41 games this season. He has mostly been paired with Brent Burns.
The first-place Sharks have depth at defense and will move Joakim Ryan into the lineup. Erik Karlsson remains sidelined by a groin injury but is expected to be healthy for the playoffs.
