News: The Canadiens assigned Thomas to St. John's of the American Hockey League on Sunday.
Impact: Thomas played in a career-high 18 regular season games with the Canadiens last year, but finished with just one goal. The 23-year-old will now head back to the AHL to continue his development. If called back up to the Canadiens at some point this season, expect him to add depth at forward.
