It appears the San Jose Sharks will be without Joe Thornton for their series opener against the Edmonton Oilers.

Thornton, who suffered a knee injury on April 4, has been listed as a scratch for the Sharks on Wednesday, per the NHL’s roster report before puck drop.

Thornton had expressed confidence that he would be ready for Game 1, but developments earlier in the week at practice suggested that he might still have to wait before making his return.
