Thomas, who is signed to an entry-level contract, is expected to play in Hartford this coming season. He had two points in five regular season games in Hartford and was scoreless in six playoff games.
At Hockey's Future, Leslie Treff lists Thomas as the Rangers boom or bust prospect citing his immense talent, but also his "lackluster" Traverse City Tournament, size and scoring slumps he had this season.
Tregg writes that Thomas is speedy and has "excellent hockey sense." At the end of the season, John Tortorella mentioned Thomas as someone he looked forward to seeing in training camp.
Thomas was voted to have the second best shot in the OHL last season.
