Meier Ready to Take the Torch?

Published

on

In October, there was a symbolic passing of the San Jose Sharks’ torch in Switzerland.

Joe Thornton, who was about to suit up for National League side HC Davos, hung out twice with soon-to-be ex-teammate Timo Meier. Thornton was about to leave San Jose for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Jumbo had worn teal since 2005; Meier was nine years old then.

“He just said he wants to be close to his family in Toronto. He knows we’re going to miss him,” the 24-year-old, about to enter his fifth season with the Sharks, said today. “It’s a great chance for young guys to step up and take ownership. Be more of a leader since he’s gone.”
