REPORT: ONE TEAM IS INTERESTED IN JOE THORNTON AND HAS CONTRACT READY FOR HIM IF HE WANTS IT

SEP 23, 2022  (13H10)      RYAN
Joe Thornton is one of the greatest playmakers the National Hockey League has ever seen. Jumbo Joe stands at 6'4 and on multiple occasions put up 90+ assists and 100+ points.

Thornton currently ranks 12th all time in NHL history is points and 7th all time in assists, but despite these numbers, he was left off the NHL top 100 list a few seasons ago.


Jumbo Joe is still searching for his first stanley cup at the age of 43, and despite moving around to two contending teams these past 2 years, he is yet to find any playoff success.

It was rumoured going into this offseason that Thornton would be retiring, but with training camps beginning and the start of the season just a few weeks away, he has yet to announce if he will be retiring.

One thing we do know though, one team is interested in offering him a contract to come back to the NHL for atleast one more season.

Things are kind of up to him. I don't know if he wants to play or not play, when he figures that out, and his family figures that out, then I'm sure have a conversation with him at some point.
-Sharks GM Mike Grier.
