The Sharks have placed forward Martin Havlat on injured reserve, GM Doug Wilson announced Tuesday. San Jose has recalled forward Freddie Hamilton from Worcester in a corresponding roster move.

Havlat has had a disappointing and injury-plagued Sharks career and has just eight points (three goals, five assists) in 22 games this season.

Hamilton had 18 points (11 goals, seven assists) in 22 games with the Worcester Sharks to tie for the team lead in scoring.
