  • Sharks' Joe Thornton: Suffers same knee injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/18) Thornton (knee) told reporters he sustained tears to both his ACL and MCL in his right knee, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    Despite the injury and the coming rehab and surgery, Thornton maintains that he would like to return for another year with San Jose -- even going so far as to offer to reduce his salary hit on a one-year deal in order to provide the organization additional flexibility. The team might be willing, considering the center earned 36 points in 47 games prior to getting hurt. Depending on the size of the paycut, the Sharks might be in the running to secure the services of Evander Kane on a permanent basis.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Unable to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/7/18) Thornton (knee) was unable to get back into action before the Sharks were bounced from the playoffs.

    Thornton last appeared for San Jose on Jan. 23, a stretch of 45 games on the sideline. What this means for the 38-year-old remains to be seen, as he will be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason and coming off a significant knee injury. When he was in the lineup, the center was his usual productive self, considering he logged 36 points in 47 contests. It seems unlikely the life-long Shark will want to play elsewhere -- although many people thought the same about Patrick Marleau, who spent the 2017-18 campaign with Toronto.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Out for Game 6

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/18) Thornton (knee) will not play in Game 6 on Sunday against Vegas, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    This may have been Thornton's last chance to play this season, as the Sharks have their backs against the wall, down 3-2 in the series. The 38-year-old hasn't played since January and the team clearly doesn't want him to suit up until he's back to 100 percent. If San Jose hangs on Sunday, Thornton will have another shot to play Tuesday in Game 7.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Remains out for Game 5

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/4/18) Thornton (knee) won't suit up for Game 5 against Vegas on Friday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    The Sharks have their offense buzzing with 10 goals in the last three games, but Thornton would bolster the center depth had he been in any shape to return. Thornton mustered 13 goals and 36 points in 47 regular-season games, but he hasn't played since Jan. 23, so the Sharks may want to ensure he's fully conditioned before returning.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Sitting out Game 4

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/2/18) Thornton (knee) will not return to the lineup for Game 4 against the Knights, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    Thornton took the ice for pregame warmups, but it appears he will require at least a couple more days before he can give it a go. Joonas Donskoi (lower body), however, will return to provide some reinforcements as the club looks to even up the series before heading to Vegas for Game 5 on Friday.
