Shawn Thornton is a bad-ass. Plain and simple.
Not only will he pummel you to a juicy pulp like Tropicana, he’ll then turn around and score some sicky goal top shelf like he was Sidney Crosby or something.
Some other reason why Thornton gets this week’s honor?
He took time out of his busy pugilistic endeavors to appear in a Dropkick Murphys’ video. (For those of you who don’t know, the Dropkick Murphys pretty much provide the soundtrack to the Boston sport scene. See evidence below.)
AND just the other day, he took a skate to the face from Fernando Pisani and needed 4o stitches to close the gash.
Shawn is looking a little bit like Frankenstein’s monster nowadays, but that only adds to his bad-assery and overall hockey foxiness.
So let’ see…
He can fight.
He can score.
He can do shots.
He’s got “blue-collah swagga.”
This is a combination that we likey. We likey very much.
And that is what makes Shawn Thornton this week’s Foxy Friday.
