Thornton would return for another season only to play for Sharks

Thornton would return for another season only to play for Sharks Joe Thornton hasn't decided whether he'll suit up for another NHL campaign, but if he does, it'll be with the San Jose Sharks. "It is safe to say," the veteran forward told reporters Thursday. "I'm a Shark. There's one team and it's here." Thornton said he still has to discuss his future with the team before figuring out his next move. "I've got to talk to (head coach) Pete (DeBoer), (general manager) Doug (Wilson), and (team owner) Hasso (Plattner), but we'll see," he said. "I feel like I can still play, that's for sure, but I haven't made any decision." The 39-year-old added that he hasn't set a timeline for his choice. Thornton will turn 40 on July 2, one day after free agency opens.
