Corey Pronman of Puck Prospectus ranked him 11th on his list of Rangers prospects and wrote that he is a great skater who works hard and has a great shot, but is brought down by his size.
Leslie Treff ranked him sixth and wrote "A goal scorer, as well as good distributor of the puck, Thomas will need to improve his strength on the puck to take his junior successes to the next level this season."
So far in Hartford, Thomas has one goal in four games.
Pronman tweeted that he was impressed with Thomas in the Whale win against Albany on Wednesday.
