  • Panthers' Shawn Thornton: Not dressing much this year

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/17) Thornton has only dressed for 15 games this year, contributing a single assist along the way.

    The 37-year-old enforcer has never been known for his offense (99 points in 670 career games), but it's worth noting that he's only recorded seven PIM this year. Thornton used to be known for his pugilistic contributions and maintained value in some settings due to his time spent in the sin bin (1043 career PIM), but with such a lack in playing time, there's nothing left here to latch onto for fantasy purposes.

    Panthers' Shawn Thornton: Tallies rare point Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/27/16) Thornton collected an assist in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Blue Jackets.

    The veteran pugilist recorded his first point of the season in what was his fourth appearance of 2016-17. Thornton rarely plays thanks to his frequent banishment to the press box as a healthy scratch, making him about as irrelevant a player as any for fantasy purposes.

    Panthers' Shawn Thornton: Will make season debut Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/29/16) Thornton will make his season debut Saturday afternoon against the Sabres, Joe Yerdon of NHL.com reports.

    Panthers coach Gerard Gallant has shuffled the active lineup ahead of the upcoming contest against the bottom dwellers of the Eastern Conference, and that includes giving Thornton and defenseman Steven Kampfer their first taste of game action this season. Still, Thornton isn't likely to be much of a factor in fantasy leagues, as he scored only 10 points in 96 games with the Cats over the last two seasons.

    Panthers' Shawn Thornton: Watching from press box early on

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/26/16) Thornton hasn't suited up for a game yet this season.

    The tough guy got into 50 games last year, but even with some injuries up front, the Panthers haven't yet brought him out of the press box. That leaves his value pretty much nil even in fantasy formats that utilize Thornton's two best categories, hits and PIM.

    Panthers' Shawn Thornton: Agrees to one-year extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/25/16) The Panthers agreed to terms with Thornton on a one-year contract extension Thursday.

    Thornton is a 12-year veteran lauded for his work ethic and role as a leader. While he's not very impactful in the fantasy realm with just three points and 50 PIM in 35 games, Thornton appears to be in the good graces of management. "Shawn is a highly respected and hardworking member of our hockey club, both on and off the ice," general manager Dale Tallon said. "His experience and leadership have made a positive impact on our locker room and on our young players as they continue their development."

  • April 4, 2015: Panthers' Thornton To Be Scratched Saturday
    Thornton is slated to be scratched for Saturday's game against the Lightning, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.Thornton is coming off one of his best games of the season, where he got an assist and posted a plus-1 rating; however, with Scottie Upshall returning to the lineup, Thornton finds himself as the odd man out. His already limited fantasy value takes an even bigger hit if he's out of the lineup.
    April 3, 2015: Panthers' Thornton Tallies Assist In Win Thursday
