Another Year For Joe Thornton

SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has agreed to terms with Center Joe Thornton to a one-year contract.

"Words cannot equate the impact that Joe has had on this franchise since his arrival in San Jose in 2005," said Wilson. "Joe is a generational player who seemingly blazes past an existing Hall-of-Famer with each game he plays. His leadership and dedication to the organization and his teammates is inspiring. He has the rare ability to make the players around him better and we're excited to see him healthy and back wearing the Sharks crest."

Last season, Thornton registered 51 points (16 goals, 35 assists) in 73 games with San Jose, finishing seventh on the Sharks in assists, eighth in points and tied for fourth in game-winning goals.


Reports say $2M.
