San Jose Sharks captain Joe Thornton will begin playing for HC Davos in the Swiss National League A as early as this weekend.

Thornton played for Davos during the 2004-05 work stoppage, compiling 54 points in 44 games. He met his wife in Davos and told Pierre Lebrun of ESPN.com that he has trained with Davos in the past when they are there visiting family.

Thornton said he is planning to fly to Switzerland later this week.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
