During yesterday’s San Jose Sharks V Vancouver Canucks game, Joe Thornton was assisted off the ice. He flew into the boards and had a hard time getting up and was obviously in pain. No updates were available during the postgame show.
Thornton has not missed a game during his entire stint with the Sharks. He has played 379 consecutive games. He game-playing streak goes back to his days with the Boston Bruins.
Seeing him being assisted off the ice is a big deal. It was awful to witness. I am curious….
