Joe Thornton suspended one playoff game after illegal check to the head By Cara Bahniuk  0 Comment

Nosek remained in the game.

Sharks center and alternate captain Joe Thornton has been suspended one game for his illegal check to the head on Golden Knights winger Tomas Nosek in Sunday's Game 3 of the Western Conference series.

Thornton was assessed a two-minute minor penalty for head contact on the play in the second period of Game 3. As a result, Thornton will miss Game 4 on Tuesday night in Las Vegas.

Thornton is in his 14th season with San Jose after eight years with the Bruins.

The hit came during Game Three of the Sharks series verses the Vegas Golden Knights. "He came right back". I think my son hits me like that six times a day.

Vegas' Ryan Reaves had other thoughts about it, comparing Thornton to a friend's grandpa who needs glasses because he can't see very well. "It's behind the play. It's everything you're trying to get rid of in hockey".

The latest National Hockey League playoff suspension has come down, and this time it's Joe Thornton on the receiving end.

Thornton is a key piece in San Jose's lineup, centering the third line alongside Marcus Sorensen and Kevin Labanc and also playing on the top power-play unit. He was suspended two games during the 2010-11 season for a hit to the head on St. Louis Blues forward David Perron, and the National Hockey League department of player safety cited that suspension in its announcement Monday. Forward Evander Kane was suspended for Game 2 previous year for a cross-check to the head of Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.
