  • Sharks' Joe Thornton: Wins game with 400th goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/18) Thornton scored a goal and fired four shots on net in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Predators.

    It was an electric scene as Thornton took a pass from Marcus Sorensen and scored the Sharks' second goal -- the eventual game winner -- in 13 seconds to take the lead at the Shark Tank. With his 400th career goal, Thornton joins an elite club of just seven players that have played 1,500 games, scored 400 goals and dished out 1,000 assists. Among a few in that group are Gordie Howe, Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Minus-1 rating in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/31/18) Thornton logged 14:19 and recorded a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers.

    Thornton's averaging 15:21 through three contests, so it's clear the Sharks are easing Thornton back into action, as he was able to play over 18 minutes per game last year. However, the Sharks wasted no time getting Thornton back on the power play, where he posted 18 points last season. If the veteran center can stay healthy, he remains a worthy fantasy hold.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Back in action

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/30/18) Thornton (knee) will return to action Tuesday night against the visiting Rangers, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    Thornton barely logged 30 minutes of ice time between the season's first two games before aggravating his surgically repaired knee. Even at 39 years old, Jumbo Joe should be able to maintain a top-six lineup position as long as he's healthy enough to do what he does best -- setting up his teammates for an abundance of scoring opportunities. Thornton ranks 12th all-time in helpers with 1,031 in just 1,495 career contests between the Bruins and Sharks.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Not quite ready to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/28/18) Thornton (knee) will not play in Sunday's game against the Ducks, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.

    Jumbo Joe has been traveling with the Sharks, but the 39-year-old center will miss his eighth straight game. Given his age and importance to the club, it's no surprise that all the necessary precautions are being taken with Thornton's injury, particularly because the veteran aggravated the surgically repaired right knee. His next chance to play will arrive Tuesday for a home clash with the Rangers.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Won't play Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/25/18) Thornton (knee) -- who is traveling with the team -- will not be in action against the Hurricanes on Friday, Paul Gackle of the Bay Area News Group reports.

    Thornton's inclusion on the team's two-game road trip would seem to indicate he is nearing a return, but it won't be Friday. Once given the green light to play, Jumbo Joe will almost certainly return to the first-line center spot and allow Joe Pavelski to move back to wing.
