SAN JOSE, California — The San Jose Sharks announced today that center and team captain Joe Thornton has been selected as the Brocade “Sharks Player of the Month” for the month of March. The award will be presented to Thornton prior to tonight’s game against the Dallas Stars.

Thornton led the team in points (13) and assists (11) in 16 games. He had four multiple-point games, including three assists on Mar. 9 at Dallas. This marks the second consecutive month Thornton has received this honor.

Established in the 1996-97 season, the Brocade “Sharks Player of the Month” program honors the Sharks player(s) who have contributed most to the team’s success each month. Brocade will donate $2,500 on behalf of the player(s) to The Sharks Foundation.
