Sharks star Joe Thornton will likely miss "several weeks" with an MCL-related injury to his right leg, GM Doug Wilson said on Wednesday.
Thornton, 38, came off the ice with 40 seconds left in the third period of the Sharks' 5-4 overtime loss to the Jets on Tuesday night in San Jose. Teammate Mikkel Boedker fell on his right leg as Thornton was tumbling to the ice after chasing down a puck in the neutral zone.
Wilson said, at a minimum, Thornton will miss two weeks. According to The Athletic, the Sharks are still waiting for the results of an MRI for a determination on surgery or next steps for Thornton.
