News: Thornton scored a rare goal -- the only one of the game for the Panthers -- in Monday's 4-1 home loss to the Wild. Impact: The second-period tip-in tally actually required a bit of finesse from the enforcer, who now has 39 goals in 576 career games. It's no secret that most of Thornton's value lies in the PIM department, but since he only has 13 on the season, it's tough to recommend the former Bruin for fantasy purposes at this point.(RotoWire, )

News: Thornton has only one assist and more shockingly, only 13 PIM in his first 16 games of the season. Impact: The 37-year-old veteran was signed to a two-year deal worth $2.4 million in the off season to bring some leadership and toughness to the young Panthers group. He has never been expected to produce much for offence considering he is a staple on the fourth line averaging only 10:30 minutes of ice time per game. Thornton is only a consideration for leagues that reward PIM. Only problem is with Thornton's age, he's not capable of dropping his gloves like he did back in the day, like when he collected a career-high 154 PIM in the 2011-2012 season. Last season with the Bruins, he was able to collect five goals and three assists along with a plus-3 rating and 74 PIM. Expect his totals to drop while his career winds down.(RotoWire, )
