Flyers' Nate Thompson: Out at least two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson will miss a minimum of two weeks with a knee sprain.

Thompson's absence will test the Flyers' depth at forward, but it won't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up 15 points in 70 games this campaign. Connor Bunnaman will take over as Philadelphia's fourth-line center until Thompson's ready to return.

Flyers' Nate Thompson: Still adjusting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson has one assist, five shots, a plus-1 rating and nine PIM in seven games with the Flyers since his deadline trade.

The veteran forward recorded his one point, nine PIM and a plus-2 rating with the Flyers in the span of three games from March 1-4. Outside of those contests, he's done little with Philadelphia. Thompson should produce more once he settles in with his new team, but his ceiling isn't anywhere high enough to be start-worthy in most leagues. He has four goals and 15 points with 67 shots in 70 games with the Canadiens and Flyers this season.

Flyers' Nate Thompson: Flipped via trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson was brought in by the Flyers from the Habs on Monday in a swap for a 2021 fifth-round pick, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Thompson has recorded four goals and 10 helpers in 63 outings this season while averaging 12:48 of ice time. The Anchorage native won't be a factor on Philadelphia's power play, but he should bolster the club's forward depth in a bottom-six role. Only fantasy owners in the deepest of formats should be giving the 34-year-old another look following his relocation to the City of Brotherly Love.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Returning to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (illness) will suit up in Tuesday's game against the Red Wings, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.

Thompson had missed Saturday's game against the Stars due to the illness, but as evidenced by this news, he's healthy enough for a return. The 35-year-old's return likely won't affect things too much from a fantasy perspective, however, as he's accumulated just 13 points through 60 games this season.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Can't go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (illness) will miss Saturday's game versus the Stars, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

Dale Weise draws into Montreal's lineup for this game, with Thompson unable to go in back-to-back contests. The Canadiens have two days off before their next game, which should be enough time for Thompson to shake off whatever illness he's dealing with. Healthy or not, the veteran forward is of little consequence in fantasy, registering all of 13 points in 60 games this season.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Ready to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (illness) will draw into Friday's game against the Penguins, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Thompson will avoid missing action because of the bug and will slot into his usual spot as the fourth-like center. Despite his inclusion in the lineup, Thompson holds little value in the majority of fantasy leagues.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson is under the weather and will be a game-time decision against Pittsburgh on Friday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Thompson has been in an offensive groove of late, as he registered three points in his last five games. With just 23 games remaining on the year, the center might be hard pressed to get back over the 20-point mark for just the second time in his 13-year NHL career.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Enhanced ice time Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had an assist, one shot on net and one hit over 14:48 of ice time in Monday's 3-2 loss to Arizona.

Montreal's fourth line gave the Habs an early lead, when Thompson and Nick Cousins initiated a sequence of events that ended with Jake Evans pocketing his first NHL goal. The assist was Thompson's third point (one goal, two assists) in the last four games. The fourth-line center, who played two minutes more than his season average, was needed for extra shifts after Phillip Danault (mouth) left the game. If Danault misses time in upcoming games this week, Thompson is unlikely to get a promotion off the fourth unit.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Part of comeback effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson scored a goal on four shots, adding two hits and a minor penalty to his line in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Devils.

The Canadiens dug out of a deep hole after falling behind 3-0 early in the second period. Thompson's goal, his third of the season and first since Dec. 6, cut the lead to 3-2. The 34-year-old center has just 11 points over 55 games, but the Canadiens don't measure his value by offensive contributions. Thompson's a fourth-line center that wins faceoffs and kills penalties.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Pointless run continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had one shot on net, three hits and won five of eight faceoffs in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Penguins.

Thompson's pointless streak reached 12 games, but the fourth-line center isn't employed for his offense. He's a steady presence on the penalty-kill unit and is useful on draws. The 34-year-old Thompson has won 54 percent of his faceoffs, second on the Canadiens behind Phillip Danault.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Snaps point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had an assist, one shot, one hit and one blocked shot over 13:23 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

Thompson won a defensive-zone faceoff late in the third period, leading to Shea Weber's empty-net goal that sealed the Canadiens' first win in nine games. The assist was Thompson's first point in nine games, befitting the limited fantasy value he holds as the team's fourth-line center. The Alaska native has eight points and 29 shots in 28 games.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Dishes out pair of hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson did not record a point but did dish out two hits in a 3-1 loss to Boston on Sunday.

The veteran has not found the points column since Nov. 15, making it very difficult to trust Thompson in a fantasy sense. The 35-year-old only has managed to produce seven points in 27 appearances in 2019-20.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Adds helper Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson posted an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-2 win over the Capitals.

Thompson set up Jordan Weal for the eventual game-winner in the second period. With the assist, Thompson now has seven points in 19 games. He only produced 13 points in 78 outings last year, so he's been a far more regular contributor for the Canadiens this season despite his fourth-line usage. The Alaska native has added 27 hits, 23 blocked shots and 23 shots on goal in 2019-20.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Scores first of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson scored a goal on his lone shot on net in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Kings. He added two hits and two blocks over 13:30 of ice time.

Thompson, a former King, potted his first goal of the season and has six points in 17 games. The 35-year-old center is ahead of last season's pace when he had 13 points in 78 games. The enhanced scoring rate can be partially attributed to a more prolific team offense. Montreal ranks fifth in goals per game (3.5), a half-goal improvement over 2018-19.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Stands out against Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had a season-high 17:16 of ice time and won eight of 14 faceoffs in Tuesday's win over the Bruins. He added two shots, two hits and four blocked shots.

Thompson has five assists and is plus-1 while winning a team-best 55.7 percent of his faceoffs. "Obviously, he's been good," coach Claude Julien told Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette about Thompson. "Yesterday he was one of our top centremen there when we were trying to win some draws in our own end. But he's been good everywhere. His pace has been good throughout the start of the season so far. His line's been good ... they've been producing." Thompson has been working on the fourth line with prospect Nick Suzuki and veteran Nick Cousins. The 35-year-old center does not produce much in the scoring categories, but that could change if he continues to skate with an offensively gifted player like Suzuki.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Enjoying the Nicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had an assist, one hit and two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

Thompson recorded his third assist in the last four games as the fourth line has experienced a bounce with the addition of Nick Suzuki and Nick Cousins. That unit has produced four goals and six assists over the last five games. Thompson, who recorded eight assists in 78 games last season, already has five through 11 contests. Known more for his work on the PK and the faceoff circle, the 34-year-old Thompson is thriving with his younger linemates.

Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Sets up rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had an assist on two shots along with a hit and two blocked shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

Thompson delivered a pass to rookie Nick Suzuki, who snapped a quick shot over the left shoulder of Jake Allen. It was Thompson's third point (all assists) of the season. He opened the season skating with Paul Byron and Jordan Weal, but lately has found himself with the offensively gifted Suzuki, who could provide a scoring boost for the fourth-line center.

October 4, 2019 11:28 AM
Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Healthy dose of ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had one assist, one shot and one blocked shot while winning nine of 12 faceoffs over 14:21 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

Thompson was part of a pretty tic-tac-toe sequence with fellow fourth liners Paul Byron and Jordan Weal to give Montreal its third goal. Thompson is firmly entrenched as the Canadiens' fourth-line center and has little chance of moving up. His healthy allotment of ice time Thursday is unlikely to persist over the course of the season. There are times when head coach Claude Julien will roll all four lines, and that's what happened in the season-opener.

April 25, 2019 10:40 AM
Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Commands one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson agreed to a one-year, one-way contract extension with the Canadiens on Thursday.

This is the second one-year deal that Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin has bestowed on a skater in the past week, with defenseman Christian Folin agreeing to terms on an extension last Thursday. Thompson produced 13 points (five goals, eight assists) over 78 games between the Kings and Habs this season, with the Kings receiving two 2019 draft picks -- specifically, a fifth-round pick and fourth-rounder -- upon sending Thompson to Montreal this past February.

March 25, 2019 12:36 AM
Canadiens' Nate Thompson: Piling up assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson recorded an assist in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to Carolina.

Not normally an offensive threat, Thomspon has been hot of late, recording assists in four straight games. He's up to 12 points on the year, having split time between LA and Montreal. The fourth-line plugger also dished out three hits and was a plus-1 in defeat.
