Joe Thornton Has Knee Surgery Before Free Agency

Apr 25, 2017 1:42 AM

Before Sharks center Joe Thornton heads into an uncertain offseason where he could be a free agent, he had more pressing business.

Thornton underwent surgery on a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee Monday to repair an injury that sidelined him less than two weeks before he returned to play the final four games of a first-round series loss to the Oilers.

"I've been in this business a long time," GM Doug Wilson said. "You see a player play with that type of injury tells you all you need to know about him."

Mar 30, 2017 3:05 PM

Zach Parise will likely miss the next three games with bruising and swelling around his eye from a high stick to the face that led to blows to his head as he fell.

Bruce Boudreau said Parise came away from the scary collision with his vision intact and perhaps on track to return next week.

"A little sore in his upper body, but I don't think he's going to be out for a long period of time," Boudreau said.

Stamkos: 'When I'm 100 Percent, I'll Be Back'

Mar 23, 2017 1:44 PM

Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said he won't return to the lineup until he's 100 percent.

The 27-year-old forward has been sidelined since having surgery on Nov. 17 to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee. He's been practicing with the team and described his progress as "slow," but he feels he's getting closer.

"When I'm 100 percent, I'll be back," Stamkos said after the team's morning skate. "Obviously, you hope that's sooner than later, but I have no control of the healing that goes on in the process."
