Sharks C Dominic Moore says he missed playoff games to be with ailing wife

SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose Sharks centre Dominic Moore says he missed playoff games this post-season because his wife has a rare form of liver cancer.

Moore issued a statement Tuesday through the Sharks to explain his absence from San Jose's final two playoff games in April against St. Louis.

He says his wife, Katie, was diagnosed with the disease late in the season. She underwent surgery in California in April and Moore missed the final two games against the Blues with the team's permission.

Moore thanked the organization and his teammates for their support. He says Katie is still being treated and offered no further details.

Moore was acquired in February from Tampa Bay for a second-round pick and had no goals and six assists in 23 games.
