Maple Leafs Forward Joe Thornton Injures Wrist in Loss to Oilers
January 21Michael ArinzeSportsGrid
The Toronto Maple Leafs lost last night’s game to the Edmonton Oilers, and they may have also lost forward Joe Thornton for an extended time. Thornton seemed to injure his wrist while taking a hit from Edmonton’s Josh Archibald along the boards. The veteran forward left the ice and went straight to the dressing room after the hit.
Thorton signed with the Maple Leafs after a 15-year stint with the San Jose Sharks. The former number one pick in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft is still searching for his first Stanley Cup title. He’s racked up 421 goals and 1,090 assists in his career that has now spanned 23 seasons.
The Maple Leafs offense hasn’t been as good as some might have expected at the start of the season. They’re currently averaging three goals per game with a goal differential right at zero.
Toronto is back in action on Friday for the second leg of their series against Edmonton.
