Shawn Thornton Cleared for Contact, Hasn’t Received Word About Suiting Up for Saturday’s Game

Shawn Thornton is back.

The Bruins’ forward, who has been out for a week with a concussion, has been cleared for contact, according to the Boston Bruins.

Despite being cleared to practice and for contact, he has yet to hear word if he’ll be suiting up on Saturday when the Bruins host the Tampa Bay Lightning. Fans interested in winning front-row “glass seats” to that game can enter here.
