Joe Thornton will be sidelined for “several weeks”, possibly longer, with a right-knee injured suffered Tuesday night.

Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said Thornton will undergo an MRI Wednesday to assess the extent of the injury to his right medial collateral ligament . At this point, it’s unclear whether Thornton will require surgery to repair the damage to his right knee.

“It looks like it’s MCL related,” general manager Doug Wilson said. “It looks like he’s going to be out for several weeks, anyhow. Our policy is if it’s more than two weeks, we let you know.”

It continues to amaze me how Marchand can find such subtle ways to seriously harm other players.  The first time I saw the play…never noticed it.  Not until they slowed it down in the replay from reverse angle. 

At least they gave him 5…most players probably would have gotten 2.
