Joe Thornton continues to add to his Hall of Fame resume. 

Currently playing in his 21st season, the veteran center had two assists on Kevin Labanc's first and third goals of the night in San Jose's 5-2 over Edmonton Saturday night. The hat trick was the first of Labanc's career. 

With his two apples, Thornton tied Detroit Red Wings legend and Hockey Hall of Famer Gordie Howe for ninth all time in career assists (1,049). Thorton is also now one point behind Teemu Selanne for 15th on the all-time points list (1,459).
