  • Thornton plans to keep playing following the 2019-20 campaign, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports. Despite his advanced age, Thornton has remained a solid middle-six option for the Sharks this season, notching seven goals and 31 points while averaging 15:30 of ice time in 70 games. San Jose has been awful this season and likely won't be in a position to contend in 2020-21, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Jumbo Joe suiting up for a new club next year.

  • Thornton potted a power-play goal on two shots, dished three hits and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Avalanche. Thornton has netted three goals in his last five games. The veteran center is up to 30 points, 76 shots on net and a minus-16 rating in 69 contests. The 40-year-old Thornton should remain in a top-six role, especially if Logan Couture (undisclosed) is forced to miss time.

  • Thornton scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Wild. Thornton scored at 9:08 of the third period to cut the deficit to one goal, but the Sharks were unable to equalize. The 40-year-old center has notched four of his six goals this season in his last seven outings. He's up to 29 points, 73 shots on goal and a minus-14 rating in 67 contests overall.

  • Thornton scored a goal on three shots and added two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Penguins. Thornton's pass attempt late in the third period deflected off of Penguins defenseman Jack Johnson and into the net for the Sharks' fifth and final goal of the game. It was also Thornton's fifth tally this year -- he's up to 28 points, 69 shots and 32 PIM through 65 contests. It's highly unlikely the 40-year-old center comes anywhere near last year's 51-point output, but Thornton's offense could be worth a look in deep formats.

  • Thornton scored two goals Saturday in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers. Jumbo Joe hadn't scored in his 14 previous games, and these were his first road goals in 2020. Thornton has admitted it's tempting to get traded to a contender. After all, he's in his 22nd season and is yet to win it all. Some of the rumored destinations include Boston, Colorado, Tampa Bay, Dallas and Pittsburgh. Thornton's fantasy value is negligible -- four goals and 27 points in 61 games just don't make a dent in most leagues.
