  • Sharks' Joe Thornton: Goes under knife

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/25/18) Per general manager Doug Wilson, Thornton underwent an arthroscopic procedure Thursday to address an issue with his right MCL and is out indefinitely, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    This isn't the news the Sharks or Jumbo's owners were hoping to receive, as the MRI Thornton underwent earlier this week evidently revealed he would require surgery to correct the issue with his right knee. No timetable has been set for Thornton's return to game action at this time, but San Jose should release another update on the 38-year-old pivot's status once he's able to resume skating.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Placed on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/18) The Sharks placed Thornton (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Paul Gackle of the Bay Area News Group reports.

    Thornton is expected to miss "several weeks" due to an injury to his right MCL, so this move was nothing but a formality. It will be difficult for the Sharks and fantasy owners alike to replace Jumbo's production while he's sidelined, as he's been picking up steam recently, notching five goals and nine points in his last seven contests. San Jose should release another update on Thornton's status once they receive the results from the MRI he recently underwent.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Facing weeks long absence

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/18) Thornton continues to await results from an MRI he underwent, but general manager Doug Wilson announced Wednesday that Thornton's injury is to his right MCL and that he will miss "several weeks," Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    Jumbo suffered the injury in the overtime period of Tuesday's game against the Jets, and the team will be holding its breath with the hopes that the MRI doesn't turn up anything serious. San Jose will sorely miss Thornton for however long his absence lasts, especially considering that he had scored nine points in his last seven games and 20 points in his last 21 contests prior to going down.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Awaiting MRI results

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/18) Thornton underwent an MRI on his knee after getting hurt in overtime against the the Jets on Tuesday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

    Thornton struggled to make his way off the ice and immediately headed into the locker room after sustaining an apparent knee injury. Fans and owners alike will be eagerly awaiting the results of his MRI, but his status versus the Rangers on Thursday should probably be considered questionable, at best. Even if everything comes back fine, the Sharks may decide to shut the veteran down until after the All-Star break, just to be safe.

    Sharks' Joe Thornton: Notches two points in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/18) Thornton scored a power-play goal and had an assist in Sunday's win over the Ducks

    Thornton is usually known for his playmaking, but the veteran center has now scored in five of his last six games. He's been consistent with his production all season long, racking up 13 goals and 35 points in 46 games. He won't keep scoring at this pace, but the 38-year-old is showing that there's still plenty of gas left in the tank. He makes for a safe fantasy play in the majority of formats.
