Joe Thornton ended his second sojourn in the Swiss League after some solid work.

The big playmaker produced more than a point-per-game (36 in 33) along with 36 penalty minutes and a +6 rating. Those numbers do reflect him slowing down a bit lately; he had 54 points - 44 assists alone - in the 40 games he played for Davos in 2004-05. Still, it wouldn't be shocking if he benefits from an abbreviated season.
