Another day, another jersey retirement for a San Jose Sharks legend.

On Friday, the WHL’s Seattle Thunderbirds raised Patrick Marleau’s No. 12 jersey to the rafters.

The next day, the OHL’s Soo Greyhounds retired Joe Thornton’s No. 19 jersey.

Thornton scored 71 goals and 127 assists in 125 games for Sault Ste. Marie, which led to the Boston Bruins making him the first-overall pick of the 1997 Draft, ahead of, naturally, the San Jose Sharks’ second-overall pick Marleau.

Thornton then went on to a 24-year NHL career, scoring 1,539 points, 12th in NHL history, 1,055 coming with the Sharks. Thornton and Marleau played together in San Jose from 2005 to 2017 and 2019 to 2020.

Thornton officially retired from the NHL last weekend.
