Joe Thornton could play in Switzerland next season reports Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

The NHL and the NHLPA agreed that players with out-clauses in their European contracts could return for the start of the NHL season, slated to begin in December. "Every August, [Thornton] goes to Switzerland," Friedman said on "Hockey Night In Canada" on Saturday. "Now we know the Sharks won't be playing until December and the NHL and the NHLPA have allowed players to sign overseas with out-clauses to come back then. One of the storylines to watch in the summer, over the next month, does Joe Thornton sign overseas in Switzerland to play and be ready and in better shape, even to return to the NHL for his 23rd season, whenever it begins." Thornton, who is 41, had seven goals and 31 points for the Sharks in 70 games this season. He is a UFA once the NHL season is completed. Aug 03 11:15 am (EST)
