Thornton (lower body) will play in Saturday's game versus the Oilers, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports. Thornton is ready to return after two games on the shelf. The 41-year-old has been outstanding on Auston Matthews' left wing this year, recording nine points in as many games. However, Matthews will sit out Saturday with a wrist injury. Thornton could still flank John Tavares, so his fantasy upside is decent for Saturday's contest.
Thornton (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Saturday night's matchup with Edmonton, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports. Thornton was a full participant at Friday's practice, so he's likely closer to probable than questionable for Saturday's contest. The veteran forward, who's picked up nine points in nine games this campaign, has missed Toronto's last two contests with a lower-body injury.
Thornton (lower body) remains unavailable Wednesday against the Flames, Wes Gilbertson of Postmedia reports. The same is true for goaltender Frederik Andersen (lower body) and defenseman Jake Muzzin (face), so Toronto will be shorthanded up front, on the blue line and in net. Thornton will hope to heal up by Saturday's game against the Oilers and try to extend the four-game point streak he had built up before getting hurt.
Thornton is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Terry Koshan of The Toronto Sun reports. The good news is Thornton's latest injury isn't related to the rib issue that forced him to miss extended time earlier this season, but his status for Wednesday's game versus Calgary nonetheless remains up in the air. The 41-year-old forward has racked up nine points through nine games this year.
Thornton (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Flames, David Alter of The Hockey News reports. Thornton has been electric since returning from a broken rib Feb. 15, recording two goals and five assists across seven games. It's uncertain if Thornton's absence is related to his prior rib injury. Nevertheless, the 41-year-old will aim to return to the lineup in Wednesday's rematch against the Flames.
