Shirtless Joe Thornton is coming to a mantle near you.

The San Jose Sharks unveiled one of the giveaways of the year Wednesday, a bobblehead doll of Thornton shirtless which they will distribute to fans who purchase a special ticket for their home game against the New Jersey Devils on March 20.

Thornton was caught sans shirt along with teammate Brent Burns by an intrepid photographer on the streets of Pittsburgh on their day off ahead of San Jose's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins last year. The photo went viral, with the internet swooning over Thornton's willingness to ditch his shirt in public.
