Thompson signed to professional tryout with AHL Texas

Boise, ID (10/25/17) – Steelheads Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Neil Graham announced on Wednesday that forward Tommy Thompson has been signed to a professional tryout agreement with the American Hockey League’s Texas Stars. Thompson is the first Steelheads player on an ECHL contract to be summoned to the AHL this season.

Thompson, 27, has played five games with the Steelheads this season, totaling a goal and two assists. The Londonderry, New Hampshire native attended training camp this year with AHL Texas before reporting to Idaho.
