Is one of the best passers the game has ever seen. Very hard to knock off the puck due to his massive frame and puck control. Really excels on the powerplay where his tremendous vision and playmaking ability come in handy. Was naturalized in the USA in July 2009. Also has the Swiss citizenship, because of marriage to a Swiss.

Cousins: Cody Thornton, Scott Thornton
