Analysis: Thornton moved into 19th place on the NHL's career scoring list with 1,410 points. Nine of those have come in his last eight games as the 38-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down.

Nov. 23 9:22 AM PT10:22 AM MT11:22 AM CT12:22 PM ET17:22 GMT1:22 10:22 AM MST12:22 PM EST21:22 UAE12:22 ETNaN:� BRT - Thornton scored his third goal of the season Wednesday.
Analysis: Thornton had gone five straight games without a point and 10 in a row without a goal. At least he's being more aggressive lately with 10 shots in his last three outings after an eight-game stretch during which he had just six. Timo Meier joining Thornton and Joe Pavelski's line could be a reason why. ''I think with Timo with us last game it brought us a lot of energy and a lot of chances,'' said Thornton. ''Me and Pavs really like playing with him."

Analysis: Thornton, who had only one point in his first four games of the season, also had two penalty minutes for the second straight contest. Though the 38-year-old has been on the decline for a while, the good news for his fantasy owners is that Thornton remains a big part of San Jose's power play. He spent more than 6 minutes on the ice with the man advantage Tuesday and is second on the team in that category.
July 2 7:15 PM PT8:15 PM MT9:15 PM CT10:15 PM ET2:15 GMT10:15 7:15 PM MST9:15 PM EST6:15 UAE (+1)22:15 ETNaN:� BRT - Thornton officially signed his contract to remain with the Sharks on Sunday, just hours after Patrick Marleau signed an $18.75 million, three-year deal with the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: He scored just seven goals - his fewest in an 82-game season since his rookie year in 1997-98 - and was a key part of a power-play unit that uncharacteristically struggled last season. But he still managed 43 assists, teaming with captain Joe Pavelski on San Jose's top line.
