Joe Thornton. The Captain of the San Jose Sharks has continued to rack up the assists and points of late, surpassing Bobby Hull on the NHL’s All-Time Points Leaders. He has three goals and two assists, two of those goals being game winners. His hockey sense is absolutely phenomenal. He sees plays better than anyone on the ice. He makes everyone around him better. You just can’t compliment the player enough. Just two days ago before winning the game in OT against the Minnesota Wild, he and Patrick Marleau agreed to three-year extensions on the Sharks, which means their passion isn’t where the money is. It’s where their commitment is, and Joe Thornton is one of the most passionate players in the NHL. Here’s to leading the Sharks to their first Cup win in franchise history. Here’s to his award for being an outstanding player for this week.
