  • Sharks' Joe Thornton: Undergoing surgery Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/24/17) Thornton will have surgery Monday to repair a torn ACL and MCL suffered during the playoffs, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    The fact that Thornton was able to skate at all considering the extent of the damage to his knee is remarkable, but garnering a pair of helpers is all the more impressive. The veteran will now shift his focus to the 2017-18 campaign, although it is unclear if he will be ready in time for training camp. Another concern, of course, is whether the 37-year-old will want to continue playing -- assuming the Sharks offer him a new contract.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: On ice for pregame warmups

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/17) Thornton (knee) is on the ice for pregame warmups Sunday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports. As such, it looks likely that he will play in Game 3 against the Oilers.

    Jumbo Joe was reported to be a game-time decision Sunday morning, so it looks like he'll be good to go after sitting out the previous five contests with the knee issue. Assuming there are no setbacks between line rushes and puck drop, Thornton should assume his regular role centering one of the team's top two scoring lines.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Game-time decision Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/17) Thornton's (knee) status won't be decided until just before puck drop, Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News reports.

    Jumbo Joe was quoted as saying his knee feels better, but there's no official word yet. His 50 points in 79 games is a step down for him, but still quite good, and he's always liable to go off if he gets in.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Sidelined again Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/14/17) Thornton (knee) will not play in Friday's Game 2 against the Oilers, Patrick Friolet of RDS reports.

    While Jumbo is said to be making progress, he's going to sit out his fifth straight game and the second one of the playoffs. Team Teal hung on for a win without him in the opener, but he's a premier setup man and more than holds his own in the defensive end when healthy. Take him out of your playoff pools if you haven't already.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Status to be decided around warmups

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/14/17) Thornton (knee) is a game-time decision for Game 2 against the Oilers on Friday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.

    Jumbo had that same 'game-time' status ahead of Game 1, but ultimately sat out as the Sharks prevailed for a huge road win. NHL teams are generally coy when deciding whether to disclose player injury information to the media, and it looks like Thornton is no exception with another update on him not likely to surface until warmups.
