Thompson and fellow prospect Graham Black were obtained by Florida in a swap for Marc Savard's $4.1 million contract and a 2018 second-round pick Friday. While Thompson's NHL appearances have been infrequent, a mere three contests this year, he has been a productive member of AHL Albany. During the 2015-16 campaign, the 27-year-old racked up 35 points in 56 games. Looking ahead, fantasy owners can expect the winger to spend the bulk of next season in the minors with the Portland Pirates, severely limiting his value.
Thompson has been assigned to AHL Albany. The Devils currently have a number of forwards on injured reserve, but Thompson going to the minors suggests that at least one skater (still to be named) will be healthy enough to play Thursday.
Thompson has been recalled from AHL Albany. For the 2015-16 campaign, Thompson has racked up seven goals and nine assists in 22 games with the Baby Devils. At 27 years old, the undrafted forward has yet to draw into an NHL game. As a result, his call-up means much more to New Jersey than fantasy owners scouring the waiver wire for help.
