Panthers Assign Thomas To AHL San Antonio

News: The Panthers assigned Bill Thomas to AHL San Antonio after he cleared waivers Saturday, according to the team's official Twitter page.
Analysis: Bill Thomas recorded just one point (a goal) in seven games with the Panthers, but he did have 17 points in 25 games with San Antonio before being called up. Thomas will garner consideration next time the team needs a forward if he continues playing well with his AHL squad.

Panthers Bring Up Thomas

News: The Panthers brought up Bill Thomas from AHL San Antonio on Tuesday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Bill Thomas was not signed to an NHL contract this offseason, but the Panthers upgraded his deal and recalled him after watching him pile up 17 points (9G, 8A) in 25 games with San Antonio. Thomas will jump right into the lineup Tuesday, likely as a fourth-line winger.

Journeyman Thomas Powers Panthers

News: Thomas scored the Panthers' only goal in Saturday's shutout win over the Capitals.
Analysis: He's a journeyman winger who has played just 80 games over five seasons post-lockout. His value will always be higher on the ice than in the fantasy arena.

Panthers Send Thomas to AHL

News: The Panthers sent Thomas to AHL Rochester on Sunday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The Panthers were originally expected to bring Thomas back up before Tuesday's game, but that no longer appears to be the case. Coach Pete DeBoer essentially said Thomas didn't bring any fresh energy to the team last week.

News: Thomas has been recalled by the Panthers, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Panthers Recall Thomas

News: Thomas has been recalled, reports Harvey Fialkov of the Florida Sun Sentinel.
Analysis: In December, Thomas was getting nearly 10 minutes per game and notched five points. He probably won't do much more than that in this stint, if it lasts that long.

Florida Recalls Thomas

News: Florida recalled Thomas on Wednesday, FloridaPanthers.com reports.
Analysis: Thomas hasn't appeared in the NHL since December 28th, but he did fairly well when he was there. Playing generally in the 10-minute range, he posted five points (two goals) and skated to a plus-2 rating through 13 games.

Panthers Recall Thomas

News: The Panthers have recalled Thomas from the AHL for Saturday's game, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The past week hasn't been kind to the Panthers in terms of injuries. With Rostislav Olesz suffering a broken finger, Michael Frolik losing some teeth, and Darcy Hordichuk receving stitches, the Panthers called up right winger Thomas from the AHL for Saturday's game. In 18 games with the Amerks, Thomas has seven goals and 10 assists and has been especially hot down the stretch.

News: The Amerks plan to shift Thomas to center in the wake of Michael Nylander's season-ending injury, the Democrat and Chronicle reports.

Thomas nets 10th career score

News: Penguins RW Bill Thomas scored his team's lone goal during a 2-1 shootout win Wednesday against the Sharks. The first goal in a tightly played game with few penalties, few breakaways and good goaltending came from an unlikely source -- Thomas. With the second period winding down, Miroslav Satan carried the puck into the Sharks zone and fed it to Thomas along the goal line. Thomas' bad-angle shot banked in off defenseman Rob Blake and past goalie Brian Boucher for his first goal in 22 months. "It was kind of a fluky play, but that's what you do -- you've got to throw the puck to the net, you never know what's going to happen," said Boucher, who started for the first time since Jan. 10. "Blake's trying to do the right thing, but it happens to ricochet off him and in through my legs."
Analysis: Thomas has 10 goals in 53 career games. He has been up-and-down between the NHL and AHL this season, and still appears to be nothing more than organizational depth. Despite the goal, Thomas has little to no Fantasy value.

Bissonnette, Thomas back with Pens

News: The Penguins have recalled D Paul Bissonnette and RW Bill Thomas from the AHL.
Analysis: Neither of these players has any Fantasy value at this time.

Thomas sent down to minors

News: The Sports Xchange reports Penguins LW Bill Thomas, a graduate of Fox Chapel High School in suburban Pittsburgh, was re-assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Friday. Thomas was without a point in two games.
Analysis: The Pens lured Thomas away from Phoenix in the offseason, where he wasn't a big part of their organization. He will serve as nothing more than a lower-line forward for Pittsburgh when in the NHL and can be left alone in Fantasy.

Thomas plays first game for Pens

The 23-year-old Stone played six games with the Penguins last season during three call-ups from the Penguins' American Hockey League team. Thomas, who played seven games for the Phoenix Coyotes last season, spent most of last season with San Antonio of the AHL.
Analysis: None of these players have any Fantasy value at this time.
