LAS VEGAS (AP) — San Jose Sharks center Joe Thornton was suspended Monday for one playoff game for a hit to the head of Vegas' Tomas Nosek.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Joe Thornton's contributions to the San Jose Sharks in last year's playoff series against Vegas were limited to pregame warmups and leadership.

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Tomas Hertl needed just three games to get his first NHL hat trick. It was more than a five-year wait for the second one, which came while he's playing perhaps the best hockey of his career.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — On one screen live video was showing how many feet per second Erik Karlsson was skating. On another was a video-game-like visualization of the game on the ice below between Vegas and San Jose. Nearby screens flashed prop bets — where the next goal would be scored from? would Max Pacioretty skate 3 miles tonight? — as odds were updated by the second.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Another day, another big game for San Jose defenseman Erik Karlsson.
Evander Kane and Joonas Donskoi each scored two goals, Karlsson had three assists again and the Sharks defeated the Edmonton Oilers 7-2 on Tuesday night.
Karlsson has at least one assist in 14 consecutive appearances. He has 25 points (one goal, 24 assists) during that span, and three assists in each of his last two games.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The blockbuster trade that sent Erik Karlsson to the San Jose Sharks during the offseason didn't pay immediate dividends. But the two-time Norris Trophy winner has emerged as one of the team's most impactful players lately.
Karlsson had three assists, Tomas Hertl scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period and the surging Sharks defeated the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 on Monday night.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The decision to add Erik Karlsson to an already formidable San Jose Sharks lineup during the offseason looked like a questionable move when the two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman got off to a humdrum start.
With the 28-year-old starting to hit his stride, the deal now seems to be paying off.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — In a story Nov. 14 about the Nashville Predators-San Jose Sharks game, The Associated Press erroneously reported a quote from Rocco Grimaldi. The correct quote should read:
TORONTO (AP) — Patrick Marleau celebrated a milestone on Hall of Fame night.
Marleau had his 600th NHL assist, John Tavares scored his ninth goal of the season and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the New Jersey Devils 6-1 on Friday night.
Nazem Kadri, Connor Brown, Andreas Johnsson, Morgan Rielly and Tyler Ennis also scored, and Frederik Andersen made 38 saves. Toronto improved to 11-5-0 with its third straight victory.
DALLAS (AP) — Devin Shore believes in linemate Tyler Seguin — and in the hockey concept of puck luck.
Shore scored his second goal of the game to break a tie, Anton Khudobin tied a season high with 33 saves and the Dallas Stars beat the San Jose Sharks 4-3 on Thursday night.
Dillon Heatherington's shot from the left point went off a defender's leg to Shore in the left circle, and he beat Sharks goalie Martin Jones with 5:47 to play.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — With the San Jose Sharks needing a bit more punch from their bottom lines, they turned to Jumbo Joe.
Joe Thornton's move to the third line paid instant dividends.
New linemate Marcus Sorenson had a goal and two assists as the Sharks beat the Minnesota Wild 4-3 on Tuesday night.
The 39-year-old Thornton, a four-time All-Star, joined Sorensen, who is 26 and was playing in just his eighth career game, and 25-year-old Barclay Goodrow on the third line.
SAN JOSE,Calif. (AP) — Timo Meier says he isn't a big stats guy. The San Jose Sharks' forward insists his focus is on winning.
"My goal is to help the team win games and to do as much as I can," he said. "I'm not a numbers guy. I'm not focusing on numbers, only to be the best player I can be."
He was every bit the player the Sharks needed on Saturday night.
Meier got his second goal of the game 13 seconds into overtime and the Sharks rallied to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The San Jose Sharks have activated center Joe Thornton from injured reserve.
Thornton was placed on the injured list on Oct. 7 because of swelling in his surgically repaired right knee. Thornton missed more than three weeks but will return Tuesday night when San Jose hosts the New York Rangers.
The 39-year-old Thornton is coming off his second straight year undergoing reconstructive knee surgery. He played the first two games for the Sharks and has one assist.
Doug Wilson didn't go looking for Joe Thornton insurance last summer. The general manager of the San Jose Sharks already had it.
The Sharks didn't panic when they found out their longtime star had another setback with a series of nagging right knee injuries. They knew what they could count on from captain Joe Pavelski and the rest of the supporting cast.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The San Jose Sharks have placed forward Joe Thornton on injured reserve.
Thornton has returned to San Jose after experiencing swelling in his surgically repaired right knee. He won't be available until at least next Sunday. The Sharks recalled center Dylan Gambrell from the AHL on Sunday to take Thornton's place.
San Jose plays Monday against the New York Islanders.
SAN JOSE SHARKS
LAST SEASON: 45-27-10, 100 points. Third place in Pacific Division. Lost to Vegas Golden Knights in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Peter DeBoer (fourth season, 11th NHL season).
ADDED: D Erik Karlsson, F Antti Suomela, F Rourke Chartier.
LOST: F Chris Tierney, D Dylan DeMelo, F Mikkel Boedker, F Eric Fehr, F Joel Ward, F Jannik Hansen, D Paul Martin.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Getting a healthy Joe Thornton back on the ice was supposed to be the biggest change when the San Jose Sharks began training camp this season.
That all changed when general manager Doug Wilson made a blockbuster trade to acquire two-time Norris Trophy winning defenseman Erik Karlsson, immediately turning the Sharks from a contender to one of the favorites in the Western Conference.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Joe Thornton talked to several teams last summer when he made his first trip to the free-agent market before ultimately deciding to return to San Jose on a one-year deal.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Evander Kane knew San Jose was a good fit when Joe Thornton showed up for a late-night airport pickup following a trade deadline deal.
That comfort was only reinforced over the next 10 weeks on the ice and in the dressing room. It left Kane with an easy choice as he headed toward free agency.
Kane bypassed a chance at the open market by signing a seven-year deal Thursday worth $49 million to stay with the Sharks for the long term.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Joe Thornton tested the free-agent market last summer before ending up back in San Jose on a one-year, $8 million deal.
If Thornton has his way this offseason, he'll sign with the Sharks again before hitting the open market, even if it has to be on another short-term deal.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Although the San Jose Sharks and the Anaheim Ducks both have been regular Stanley Cup playoff participants for the past 15 years, the California rivals somehow met in the postseason only once before this week.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The San Jose Sharks acquired forward Evander Kane from the Buffalo Sabres on Monday in a move to upgrade their depleted forward group.
The Sharks dealt conditional first and fourth-round picks in 2019 and prospect Danny O'Regan to the Sabres to add a high-scoring winger just before the trade deadline.
San Jose never replaced forward Patrick Marleau after he left as a free agent last July for Toronto, waiting for the right moment to add a top-six forward.
