The team said Monday that Torres will have surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. He hasn't played since hurting the knee in a game against Detroit on Dec. 13.
Torres, the fifth overall pick in the 2000 NHL draft, had five goals and six assists in 32 games this season. He played in 82 games each of the past two seasons for Edmonton.
