 Shawn Thornton is the definition of a “tough customer.” Thornton’s role on the ice is predominantly that of an enforcer and energy player. Although he could score if the puck was served up to him on a golden platter, he’s not going to get many chances if at all. He’s one of the best fighters in the game and has no issue with getting physical. Thornton is also a great leader and knows how to get the most out of his teammates.
