Joe Thornton Bio

Known as "Jumbo Joe," Thornton was acquired by the San Jose Sharks on Nov. 30, 2005 in a trade from the Boston Bruins.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Thornton spent seven-plus seasons with the Bruins, who selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 1997 NHL Draft. He had played two seasons with Sault Ste. Marie in the Ontario Hockey League and was named Canadian Hockey League Rookie of the Year in 1995-96.
