  • Sharks' Joe Thornton: Plans to play next season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/19) Thornton said Tuesday that he plans to play for the Sharks next season, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Thornton had previously stated he was unsure about returning for his 21st season, but the center himself confirmed he'll be back. He even doubled down when he texted Pierre LeBrun on Tuesday, stating: "Thinking I got 5 more years left in me." The 39-year-old put up a solid 16 goals and 51 points last season, proving that he still has something left in the tank. He's set to be a free agent come July 1, but it's all but a guarantee he'll be back with the Sharks next season.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Unsure about future

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/23/19) Thornton has yet to decide if he'll play in 2019-20. However, if he does return, it will only be with San Jose, Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.com reports.

    Thornton posted a respectable 51 points in 73 games this campaign, so he probably still has at least one more productive season left in the tank, but it remains to be seen if he'll be hungry enough mentally to make one last run with San Jose in 2019-20. The Sharks have a number of big decisions to make this offseason in terms of which pending free agents they should re-sign, including Thornton, so his status for next year likely won't become clear until free agency kicks off July 1.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Erupts for three points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/16/19) Thornton scored twice and added a helper and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Blues in Game 3.

    Thornton's second goal came in the second period, which made it a 3-1 for the Sharks at the time, but the Blues would end the frame with a 4-3 lead before the Sharks got goals from Logan Couture and Erik Karlsson to complete their comeback. Thornton has produced four goals and six helpers in 16 contests during the playoffs, providing valuable depth scoring as well as veteran experience for the Sharks.
