After all the talk and speculation, San Jose Sharks forward Joe Thornton will stay right where he is.
The All-Star center on Sunday signed a one-year contract worth $8 million, his agency announced. And apparently, Thornton literally signed the contract while on his tractor.
Thornton reportedly had plenty of suitors (just how many, Joe?), but the 38-year-old playmaker decided against them, despite longtime teammate Patrick Marleau’s decision to sign a three-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Thornton recorded 50 points in 79 games last season, proving he still has what it takes to make an impact.
