San Jose Sharks legend Joe Thornton was featured in a Super Bowl advertisement last night.
Well, at least one that debuted on Super Bowl broadcasts in Canada.
Alongside former Norris Trophy winner P.K. Subban, the two former stars helped Apple with their latest iPhone 14 commercial.
The ad is showcasing the iPhone 14’s purported long-lasting battery life. But more important than that, hockey fans must’ve been pleased to see that Jumbo still has his glorious beard.
Hopefully by now, P.K. has found his tooth!
