Thompson was brought in by the Flyers from the Habs on Monday in a swap for a 2021 fifth-round pick, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Thompson has recorded four goals and 10 helpers in 63 outings this season while averaging 12:48 of ice time. The Anchorage native won't be a factor on Philadelphia's power play, but he should bolster the club's forward depth in a bottom-six role. Only fantasy owners in the deepest of formats should be giving the 34-year-old another look following his relocation to the City of Brotherly Love.
Thompson (illness) will suit up in Tuesday's game against the Red Wings, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.
Thompson had missed Saturday's game against the Stars due to the illness, but as evidenced by this news, he's healthy enough for a return. The 35-year-old's return likely won't affect things too much from a fantasy perspective, however, as he's accumulated just 13 points through 60 games this season.
Thompson (illness) will miss Saturday's game versus the Stars, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.
Dale Weise draws into Montreal's lineup for this game, with Thompson unable to go in back-to-back contests. The Canadiens have two days off before their next game, which should be enough time for Thompson to shake off whatever illness he's dealing with. Healthy or not, the veteran forward is of little consequence in fantasy, registering all of 13 points in 60 games this season.
Thompson (illness) will draw into Friday's game against the Penguins, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Thompson will avoid missing action because of the bug and will slot into his usual spot as the fourth-like center. Despite his inclusion in the lineup, Thompson holds little value in the majority of fantasy leagues.
Thompson is under the weather and will be a game-time decision against Pittsburgh on Friday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Thompson has been in an offensive groove of late, as he registered three points in his last five games. With just 23 games remaining on the year, the center might be hard pressed to get back over the 20-point mark for just the second time in his 13-year NHL career.
