2019 Fantasy Outlook
Thompson's huge at 6-foot-6 and 205 pounds, and he turns just 22 in October, so there's some upside to be found in St. Louis' 2016 first-rounder. He spent most of last season with the big club in Buffalo, coming away with seven goals, 12 points and a minus-22 rating in 65 games. That lack of scoring suggests he's likely ticketed for a bottom-six role, though Thompson did flash some AHL scoring touch with six goals and three helpers in eight games. Though the Sabres have a glut of bottom-six forwards on the roster, Thompson's size and youth should help him secure a roster spot in camp. Read Past Outlooks

Shoulder
October 5, 2020
Thompson (shoulder) signed a three-year, $4.2 million deal with Buffalo on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Thompson underwent shoulder surgery in January and was limited to just one game at the NHL level last season. Fortunately, he should be healthy come training camp and ready to battle for an everyday role in the bottom six.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 2016 first-round (26th overall) pick got his first taste of the NHL last season, lighting the lamp three times and dishing out six helpers in 41 games. There was a learning curve for Thompson, however, as he struggled defensively at times, shying away from contact and finishing with a minus-12 rating. Still, The 6-foot-5, 205-pound forward has massive potential highlighted by a dangerous wrister, but the Blues packaged him in a trade to Buffalo in exchange for star Ryan O'Reilly. The Sabres are a better fit for Thompson at this time, as they're younger and the pressure of chasing a Cup hasn't arrived yet. It will be a good opportunity for the 20-year-old to hone in on improvements while manning Buffalo's third line. Fantasy owners in keeper leagues should see Thompson's bright future, but those searching for results this season will want to look elsewhere.
