Shawn Thornton Says He’s Going to Keep Playing Until Someone Rips the Skates Off His Legs

Fucking right Thorty. 

CBS Boston – it’s a very real possibility that Thornton’s impressive NHL career with the Bruins could be over after next season.

But don’t let that make you think Thornton’s too worried about it.

“I’m going to play until they rip the skates off me and tell me I can’t anymore,” Thornton said this week at his charity golf tournament, according to ESPN. “I’m aware of how old I am, but I definitely don’t feel it.”

It’s impossible not to love this guy. It’s ride or die for Thorty. No one loves the game more.

Next season will probably be Thorty’s last as a Bruin, but over the years he has been one of the major faces in Boston. Without a doubt he will go down as one of the best that ever dropped the gloves. Get this guy the cup next season and let him go out a champion.
