    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Continues streak in loss

    Thornton had a helper, a shot on goal and two PIM in a 6-5 shootout loss to the Flames on Thursday. Jumbo Joe has now extended his point streak to five games. He's got 31 points in his last 24 games, while only failing to crack the scoresheet twice in that span. The 36-year-old center is continuing to prove that age is nothing but a number as he puts up consistent numbers night in and night out.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Pads the scoresheet in win

    Thornthon notched a goal, an assist and a plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Blackhawks. After going on a ten-game point streak before falling off the scoresheet for a game, Jumbo Joe is back on another three-game streak. He's now got five goals and 14 assists in his last 14 games, including three goals and two assists in his last three. With a game coming up against the Flames who allow the sixth most goals in the league, Thornton is poised to continue his hot streak when he hits the ice on Thursday.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Hits 1,300 career points in midst of streak

    Thornton pushed his point streak to 10 games with two assists -- the latter of which came on the power play and was the 1,300th point of his career -- in a 6-1 demolition of the Avalanche on Tuesday. Jumbo Joe's far from washed up, that's for sure -- he's racked up 14 points while going plus-12 over the course of this streak, which is separated by just one scoreless effort from an eight-game streak in which he compiled another 11 points. Few players in the league have been filling up the ol' game log the way Thornton's been lately; on the one hand, it's a shame to see this stretch interrupted by the All-Star break, but on the other, at least it gives the 36-year-old center some rest, as he continues to play big-time minutes on the Sharks' top line, just as he has for almost the entirety of his decade-long tenure in San Jose.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Extends scoring streak to four games

    Thornton notched an assist Thursday against Edmonton in a 2-1 shootout win to extend his points streak to four games. Thornton now has six points in his past four games and 33 points in 42 games on the season. The 36-year-old still manages to rack up the points despite averaging around just two shots per game in his career. His playmaking ability is still considered elite, and while the days of him challenging for the scoring title are clearly over, he's still one of the best sources of assists in all fantasy leagues.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Opens scoring against Flyers

    Thornton had a goal and an assist in 16:59 of ice time during Wednesday's 4-2 victory over the Flyers. The veteran center saw under 17 minutes of ice time for the first time since Dec. 15, but that didn't stop him from extending his point streak to seven games. Jumbo Joe is on pace to finish below 60 points for just the second time since the 1999-00 season, but he's still a valuable fantasy commodity even at age 36.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Records three points in win over rival

    Thornton scored his sixth goal of the season and had two assists in Tuesday's win over the Kings. Thornton has been steadily producing of late, churning out two goals and seven points in his last five games. The 36-year-old center isn't tearing it up with just 23 points in 34 games on the year, but his recent strong play has us optimistic about him moving forward. Thornton has netted four power-play goals this season and is sporting a tidy plus-9 rating, so while the goals might not be at the number you would like, he still remains a valuable fantasy option in almost all leagues.
