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. Read Past Outlooks

February 19, 2019
Thompson will look to end his eight-game point drought in Tuesday's contest with the Panthers.
ANALYSIS
Thompson has been held off the scoresheet during his past eight games, which led to him being a healthy scratch in the midst of his drought. He's shown flashes of potential, but hasn't been able to bring that effort consistently. Sitting at just 11 points in 50 games, he only provides value for the deepest of leagues. Even then, his peripherals aren't great -- with 89 shots on goal and 49 hits being his most notable contributions.
