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

Thompson was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Thursday, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
Acquired in a trade with the Blues when the free-agency signing period opened in July of 2018, Thompson has been trusted with a modest amount of time on the power play (00:52) in a Sabres uniform, but the second-year skater is only at seven goals and five assists to go with a minus-22 rating through 65 top-level games this season. Furthermore, with just one point (an assist) since February, it's clear that Thompson needs to regain his confidence, so he'll aim to do that against weaker competition starting with Friday's game against AHL Laval.
