The Sharks have activated forward Marty Havlat for Thursday’s game against the Nashville Predators.
Havlat has been on injured reserve since undergoing surgery to repair a partly torn hamstring tendon on Dec. 21 and the Sharks have been counting on his return for their stretch run and the post-season that may follow.
“He’s excited,” McLellan said of Havlat. “He’s been anxious to get back and I know our team is excited about having him back. They all believe he can make an impact.”
Havlat will start the game on a line with Patrick Marleau and Ryane Clowe. He is also expected to see time on the power play’s second unit.
