Joe Thornton has signed a one-year deal to remain with the San Jose Sharks according to Kevin Kurz of NBC Sports.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie adds the deal will be worth around $6.5 million.

Thornton is coming off successful knee surgery to repair significant MCL ligament damage and a torn ACL that the 37-year-old managed to play through for the San Jose Sharks’ final three games of the postseason.

Thornton still managed to put up two assists in four playoff games before the Edmonton Oilers eliminated the Sharks in the first round.
