Thornton will miss “several weeks” with a right MCL injury.

Thornton suffered the injury during overtime on Tuesday and will miss “several weeks.” Thornton recently had left knee surgery, so luckily he avoided an injury to that same knee but it sounds like he will be out until at least mid-February.

Thornton (upper-body) is questionable for Thursday.

Thornton skated on Tuesday morning, but only with the team’s scratched players. Coach Todd McLellan is unsure whether or not Thornton will be available on Thursday. The Sharks have off on Wednesday, so it may not be known until Thursday morning if Thornton will be ready.

Thornton (shoulder) will not play on Monday vs. the Jets.

Thornton will miss his second straight game with a shoulder injury, but the Sharks are hopeful that he will be able to return at some point during their three-game road-trip. That would leave him to return either Tuesday in Minnesota or Thursday in St. Louis. Monitor his status as the week progresses.

Thornton (shoulder) will not play on Saturday.

Thornton left Wednesday’s game in the first period after suffering a shoulder injury. He practiced on Friday, but will not play tonight vs. the Blues. Missing tonight’s game snaps Thornton’s ironman street of 319 consecutive games. Thornton had been hot as of late, registering two goals and nine assists (11 points) in his last nine games.

Thornton (shoulder) is not on the ice for the morning skate; not expected to play Saturday.

Despite coach McClellan calling Thornton probable after practice on Friday, it does not look like Thornton will play because he is not on the ice for the game day skate. It does not guarantee he won’t play, but it is not a good sign. Expect an update after the skate.
