The Montreal Canadiens have placed Christian Thomas on waivers.
The team is just going through their cuts and they have decided to expose Thomas to waivers. The 23-year-old has had some good (but limited) moments in the NHL. His offensive numbers haven't been impressive but the former second round pick is still young. Another team may be tempted to take a chance on him. The team also placed Bud Holloway, Morgan Ellis and Gabriel Dumont on waivers. Sep 27 - 12:29 PM

Christian Thomas and Mike Weaver will be scratched against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.

Unfortunately, Weaver has skated in five of his 30 games since Dec. 6th. Can't have value if you don't play. To wit, the son of one of the great goal scorers Steve Thomas, Christian, has just one goal and point through his first 21 career games. No production, no fantasy value.

Christian Thomas potted his first NHL goal Thursday night against Edmonton.

Playing in his 10th game this season, Thomas had two shots in 9:56 of ice time. The son of former NHLer Steve Thomas doesn't have any fantasy value.

The Montreal Canadiens have recalled Christian Thomas from the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL.

The Habs sent Thomas down after their last game before the break, and now that the break is about to end, they will need his services again. The 22-year-old has no points in three games for Montreal this season.
Jan 25 - 5:27 PM

Christian Thomas has been assigned to AHL Hamilton.

Several teams that aren't scheduled to play on Wednesday have returned players to the minors so that they can continue to play over the All-Star break. Thomas has nine goals and 14 points in 29 AHL contests in 2014-15.

Christian Thomas and Mike Weaver are healthy scratches in Thursday's game against Ottawa.

The 22-year-old has only played in one game with the Habs this season. Mike Weaver is a veteran who has been in and out of the Canadiens' lineup this season. He has no fantasy value going forward.
Jan 15 - 7:31 PM

Christian Thomas will be back in the press box Wednesday in Columbus.

Thomas had just skated in his first game of the season on January 10th where saw 8:19 of ice time and was a minus one. With P.A. Parenteau returning from an upper body injury, Thomas will likely be the odd man out for the Canadiens for the foreseeable future. He is just 22 years of age so he will surely get his chance eventually as there is upside.
Jan 14 - 5:11 PM

Christian Thomas had 8:19 of ice time in his season debut on Saturday night.

The Habs dropped a 2-1 decision to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Thomas played on the fourth line with Michael Bournival and Sven Andrighetto. The 22-year-old was a minus-1 with one shot on goal in the game. Thomas is a capable goal scorer, but it will be hard for him to have any fantasy value if he keeps playing on the fourth line.
Jan 11 - 9:53 AM

Don't be surprised if recent call up Christian Thomas suited up Saturday night against the Penguins.

Montreal coach Michel Therrien was trying a few new things in practice on Friday and one might be to insert Thomas into the lineup on the team's third or fourth line. As Thomas has registered only 14 points in 29 games for Hamilton of the AHL, he is not really rosterable at this time.
Jan 10 - 11:14 AM

Christian Thomas has been called up Montreal.

He has notched nine goals and 14 points in 29 games with AHL Hamilton this season. Thomas is still waiting to make his season debut with the Canadiens in 2014-15. He doesn't have a point in three career NHL appearances.
Jan 9 - 10:36 AM

The Montreal Canadiens have assigned Christian Thomas to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League.

Thomas was very good throughout camp and really opened some eyes while in Montreal. If the Canadiens suffer an injury throughout the season, Thomas could be one of their first call-up options.
