Lightning's Ben Thomas: Hits waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was placed on waivers Monday.

He'll likely end up on the taxi squad, which is one step closer to his ultimate dream -- an NHL career. Thomas has played four consecutive seasons with AHL Syracuse, but he never put up more than 22 points (72 games). He's a steady bottom-paring guy if he gets a shot with the big club. The taxi squad will also have defenders Luke Schenn and Andreas Borgman.

Lightning's Ben Thomas: Handed one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas put pen to paper on a one-year, two-way pact with Tampa Bay on Monday.

Thomas has spent the past four seasons playing for AHL Syracuse without getting an opportunity to make his NHL debut. The 2014 fourth-round pick will stick with the club for at least one more year but is unlikely to offer much in terms of fantasy value even if he can crack the Lightning's lineup.

Lightning's Ben Thomas: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was optioned to AHL Syracuse on Monday.

Thomas cleared waivers and will now prepare for the start of a another year of trying to live out his pro hockey dream. He may make the NHL in the future, but even then it'd be as a depth defender.

Lightning's Ben Thomas: Inks one-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas signed a one-year, two-way deal with Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Thomas spent three seasons playing with AHL Syracuse after being selected by the Lightning in the fourth round of the 2014 NHL Draft. The blueliner figures to spend the bulk of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, but could finally make his NHL debut.

Ben Thomas: Will hit free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas didn't receive a qualifying offer from Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Thomas has been a pretty steady blue-line contributor for AHL Syracuse over the past three seasons, notching 59 points in 210 games, so he'll likely get another look with a different organization on a two-way deal this offseason.

Lightning's Ben Thomas: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (undisclosed) was shipped down to AHL Syracuse on Sunday, TSN reports.

Thomas was limited in training camp due to an undisclosed injury, which made his demotion all but guaranteed since team brass didn't get a good look at him. The blueliner figures to spend the bulk of the upcoming campaign in the minors honing his game.

Lightning's Ben Thomas: Sporting non-contact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas took the ice Friday in a non-contact sweater, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Thomas was a long shot to make the Opening Night roster even without picking up an undisclosed injury and now seems destined to start the season in the minors with AHL Syracuse. Having said that, the departure of Jake Dotchin could open the door for Thomas or Slater Koekkoek to earn a roster spot.

Lightning's Ben Thomas: Agrees to entry-level contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Lightning on Tuesday.

Thomas, a 2014 draft pick, has spent four seasons playing in the WHL. This was his best campaign, as he totaled 50 points in 74 games, mostly for the Vancouver Giants. He'll likely report to AHL Syracuse for the stretch run, as his junior team missed the playoffs.
