Thornton is headed north

Joe Thornton will play a 23rd season in the NHL.

The center signed a one-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night after spending the previous 15 years a member of the San Jose Sharks.

The 41-year-old will play for the $700,00 league minimum, which is good news for Toronto given its cap situation.

Thornton amassed seven goals and 24 assists with the Sharks in the shortened 2019-20 season.
