Top Nate Thompson News

  • Flyers' Nate Thompson: Lands on IR

    Thompson (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Thompson is expected to miss at least the next month at a minimum, so this is just a procedural move. With the roster spot opened up, the Flyers activated Derick Brassard from injured reserve.

  • Flyers' Nate Thompson: Undergoes surgery

    Thompson underwent shoulder surgery Tuesday and is expected to be out long term, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

    Considering Thompson has just one point in 19 games this season and hasn't reached the 20-point threshold since 2010-11, few fantasy players will likely be impacted by his extended absence. With Thompson out and almost certainly headed for injured reserve, Morgan Frost and Connor Bunnaman should get the opportunity to make an impact at the NHL level.

  • Flyers' Nate Thompson: Out with shoulder injury

    Thompson injured his shoulder Friday against Carolina and will be out a matter of "weeks," Giana Han of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    As a result, Thompson obviously won't be in the lineup Sunday in New Jersey with the possibility of missing quite a bit more time. The 37-year-old veteran hasn't moved the fantasy needle this season, posting a single point and a minus-8 rating in 19 games.

  • Flyers' Nate Thompson: Nets first goal of season

    Thompson scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Oilers.

    Thompson cleaned up a loose puck in front of Oilers goalie Mikko Koskinen at 10:05 of the first period. That was Thompson's first goal and point of the season. The veteran forward has added 14 hits, 29 PIM and a minus-1 rating through five contests, but he's unlikely to play above the third line. While the toughness is notable, he hasn't reached the 20-point in a season in over a decade.

  • Flyers' Nate Thompson: Secures deal with Philadelphia

    Thompson signed a one-year, $800,000 contract with the Flyers on Wednesday.

    Thompson appeared in 44 games with Winnipeg last season, picking up just five points while averaging 9:41 of ice time per contest. The 36-year-old vet will likely center Philadelphia's fourth line and kill penalties in 2021-22.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Registers two helpers

    Thompson posted two assists and four hits in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Oilers in Game 1.

    Thompson helped out on goals by Tucker Poolman and Dominic Toninato in the contest. The 36-year-old Thompson ended the regular season on a 13-game point drought, so this was an unexpected burst of offense. The fourth-line center shouldn't be counted on for a repeat effort any time soon -- he had just two goals and three helpers in 44 regular-season outings.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Points in consecutive outings

    Thompson scored a goal and added three hits in Monday's 5-1 win over the Flames.

    Thompson tied the game at 1-1 with his first-period tally, and it was all Jets after his goal. The 36-year-old has gotten on the scoresheet in consecutive games for the first time in 2020-21. He has just four points, eight shots on net, 29 hits and a plus-4 rating through 24 outings.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Pockets helper

    Thompson produced an assist and two hits in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Flames.

    Thompson had the secondary helper on a Logan Stanley goal in the second period. The assist was just Thompson's third point in 23 games this season. The 36-year-old forward hasn't been much of a factor on offense from a fourth-line role.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Generates assist

    Thompson produced an assist in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Oilers.

    Thompson's shot attempt was deflected by Mathieu Perreault for the Jets' lone goal at 12:43 of the second period. Just 38 seconds later, Connor McDavid's second tally of the game put the Oilers ahead for good. Thompson has only two points, four shots on net and 18 hits through 18 games in his first year in Winnipeg. There's little reason for fantasy managers to track his output.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Scores against old team

    Thompson scored a goal and doled out two hits in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens.

    Thompson's tally at 6:37 of the third period stood as the game-winner against his old team. It was the 36-year-old's first point in seven appearances this year. Thompson had 14 points in 63 outings with the Canadiens in 2019-20, mostly in a bottom-six role.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Kept quiet in return

    Thompson (lower body) skated a team-low 6:56 with one hit and one blocked shot in Friday's 2-0 win over the Canucks.

    Thompson returned from a 12-game absence, but he wasn't able to record his first point of the year. The 36-year-old has seen a very limited bottom-six role so far, so there's no reason for fantasy managers to have him on their radar.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Back at it

    Thompson (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve and is expected to return to the lineup for Friday's game versus Vancouver, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Thompson has been sidelined for nearly a month with a lower-body injury, but he'll return to his usual fourth-line role against the Canucks. He's gone scoreless through four games this campaign.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Ruled out Monday

    Thompson (lower body) won't be available against the Oilers on Monday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Thompson is nearing a return to the lineup but will be shelved for an 11th consecutive outing. Even once given the all-clear, the Alaska native could still end up as a healthy scratch from time to time and will need to compete with Jansen Harkins, Kristian Vesalainen and Trevor Lewis for minutes.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Trending toward return

    Thompson (lower body) was on the ice Sunday in a regular full-contact jersey, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Thompson has yet to suit up in game action since Jan. 21 while dealing with the lower-body issue, but as evidenced by this news, he's trending in the right direction. After suiting up as a full participant for Sunday's practice, the veteran will have a chance to play in Monday's game against Edmonton. Thompson will need to be activated off injured reserve to re-join the lineup, but once he's cleared, the 36-year-old is expected to challenge for a bottom-six role.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Sporting non-contact sweater

    Thompson (lower body) was on the ice Friday in a non-contact jersey but is still considered day-to-day, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Thompson is set to miss his 10th game of the season when the Jets square off with Ottawa on Saturday. Once cleared to play, the center should be in the mix for a spot in the lineup but will have to challenge the likes of Trevor Lewis and Kristian Vesalainen for minutes.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Begins skating Thursday

    Thompson (lower body) skated for the first time Thursday but remains on injured reserve, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Thompson missed the past three contests due to his lower-body issue and should be expected to be sidelined for Saturday's clash with Vancouver as well. In four games prior to getting hurt, Thompson registered four hits and one shot while averaging a meager 7:25 of ice time. Once fully fit, Thompson should be in the mix for a bottom-six role.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Lands on injured reserve

    Thompson (lower body) was designated for injured reserve Friday.

    With his placement on injured reserve, Thompson will miss at least the next three contests while recovering from his lower-body issue. With Thompson out, along with Patrik Laine (upper body), Kristian Vesalainen will slot into a fourth-line role in Thompson's stead.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Ruled out against Sens

    Thompson (lower body) won't play versus Ottawa on Saturday, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

    In four appearances this season, Thompson has registered just one shot and four hits while averaging a mere 7:25 of ice time, so fantasy players are unlikely to be impacted by his absence. The Jets will add Kristian Vesalainen to the lineup for Saturday's contest which will see Mathieu Perreault elevated to the third line. A back-to-back including Sunday's matchup with Edmonton likely means Thompson will have to wait until Tuesday against the Oilers to get back into the lineup.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Exits early Thursday

    Thompson suffered a lower-body injury and will not return to Thursday's game against the Senators.

    Thompson was injured in the first period of the contest and ruled out for the game during the first intermission. The 36-year-old forward has operated in a bottom-six role this year, averaging 8:50 per game and seeing time on the penalty kill. If he's unable to return for Saturday's game versus the Senators, Kristian Vesalainen or C.J. Suess could enter the lineup.

  • Jets' Nate Thompson: Inks deal in Winnipeg

    Thompson signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Jets on Saturday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.

    The 36-year-old forward was traded to the Flyers at the deadline last season and ended up playing in every postseason contest, recording a goal, 37 hits and 21 blocked shots over 16 playoff games. Thomspon will serve in a steady bottom-six role for the Jets during the upcoming season.
