For Joe Thornton and a select few San Jose Sharks that are in already back in town, it’s business as usual at the team’s practice facility. On Thursday at Sharks Ice, Thornton, who spent the majority of his summer in Switzerland and Canada, and new teammate Brad Stuart were the only two players to lace them up in preparation for the upcoming 2012-13 season. The time was generally spent stretching and skating laps, as the pair of veterans work at getting back into playing shape after four months off. Patrick Marleau, Antti Niemi and Thomas Greiss were also in the building, but didn’t skate on this day, instead opting for an off-ice workout.
