Sharks GM Doug Wilson answered questions coyly when he was asked if the team will bring Joe Thornton back for the 2020-21 season.
Thornton, who will turn 41 this summer, wants to keep playing, but it seems unclear at this time if he will be back with the Sharks. "Everybody knows how we feel about Joe," Wilson said. "I talk to him every few days. He’s probably climbing the walls not being able to be at the rink. But like every other player, I’ll sit down with him and do the evaluation at the end of the year. But I think you all know how we feel about him." When Wilson was asked if that means there is a place for Thornton on the Sharks’ roster next season he said: "He’s a special man. That’s all I’ll say." Apr 06 11:10 am (EST)
