  • Christian Thomas: Signs with Finnish club

    Thomas inked a one-year contract with KooKoo (Finland) on Thursday.

    Thomas last saw action in the NHL back in 2015-16 when he made one appearance for the Coyotes. After two years playing overseas, the 2010 second-round pick is unlikely to make his way back to North America and figures to eventually retire having played in 27 NHL games for the Rangers, Canadiens and Coyotes in which he garnered one goal and two assists. Thomas also played in six games for Canada in the 2018 Olympics when NHL players were unavailable.

  • Christian Thomas: Heading overseas

    Thomas inked a deal with Roble BK of the Swedish league on Thursday.

    Since being taken in the second round of the 2010 NHL Draft (Rangers), Thomas has spent the bulk of his time in the minors, although he does have 27 NHL appearances under his belt. Playing on a minor-league deal last season, the winger racked up 34 points in 51 games for AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The 26-year-old will now test his luck in Europe -- his first stint overseas.

  • Coyotes' Christian Thomas: Sent to minors Wednesday

    Thomas was sent to AHL Springfield on Wednesday.

The former second-round pick has bounced around a lot, but at 23 years old, he still has time to make an impact.

  • Coyotes' Christian Thomas: Called up from AHL on Sunday

    Thomas was recalled from AHL Springfield on Sunday.

    Thomas was previously acquired from the Canadiens in December for fellow minor league forward Lucas Lessio. Since then, he's registered three goals and four assists at Springfield while waiting for his next chance to make the big league. He hasn't exactly shined at the top level in his career, with three points in 26 career games, so he'll figure to begin his Coyotes tenure deeper in the depth chart.
