With the San Jose Sharks in the midst of their first round playoff series with the St. Louis Blues in April, forward Dominic Moore left the team to attend to a family matter.

On Tuesday, Moore released a statement through the team to explain the reason for his absence.

"There have been a lot of questions and concerns raised since it was revealed that I had to miss several games of the Sharks/Blues playoff series due to a family matter and I wanted to update extended family, friends, and former teammates on our situation.
Towards the end of the 2011-12 season, my wife, Katie, began feeling ill.  We visited with local doctors, who suggested running a variety of tests to ascertain the cause of the issue.  Ultimately, Katie was diagnosed with a rare liver cancer and it was recommended that she undergo surgery, which took place in California in April.
While it was disappointing to not be able to compete with my Sharks teammates in the playoffs, my wife's condition and care come first and I want to thank the Sharks organization, my teammates and their families for the love and support that has been shown to Katie and I during this difficult time.
We continue to pursue the best treatment and care for Katie."
