Thomas aims to excel on, off ice in NHL
by Mike G. Morreale / NHL.com Staff Writer (Feb.8th, 2017)
Every Thursday, NHL.com will look ahead to the 2018 NHL Draft with an in-depth profile on one of its top prospects.

https://www.nhl.com/news/akil-thomas...hl/c-295708656

Akil Thomas, No. 10 in NHL Central Scouting's midterm ranking of North American skaters, is projected to be selected in the first round of the 2018 NHL Draft in Dallas on June 22. He will look to become the 11th black player chosen in the first round of the NHL draft in the past 13 years. "He needs and wants the puck, and that hunger is going to get him to the NHL," said Karl Stewart of NHL Central Scouting.

A little-known fact about Thomas (and Josh Ho Sang) is he also made a cameo appearance in the film, "Soul On Ice: Past, Present, and Future," which takes the audience through the winding history of black players in hockey.

It still amazes me how in 2018 people can still hate for skin color, religion, orientation, or ethnicity. I had long since believed this was a non-issue and that ability was the only factor. Kudos to the filmmaker for addressing this topic.

Midseason Media/Scout Poll for 2018
Wednesday, February 21, 2018

https://ohlprospects.blogspot.ca/201...-for-2018.html

4. Akil Thomas - Forward - Niagara IceDogs

“He works hard to get the puck and is an exceptional skater. Thomas plays a fantastic two-way game and is unselfish and patient in everything he does out there. He does a lot for a locker room with his demeanor and hockey smarts.” - Mike Morreale

"I think that by the time Thomas' OHL career is over, he could lead the OHL in scoring." - Brock Otten

Castleman is on the fourth line and falling fast. He just coasts out there, if he isn't going into the corners he could at least get to the net. He can skate, he has a hard shot, he has good sense, but he isn't trying. Doubt he will be back next year at this rate, even though he had a good rookie year. Might have been a fluke?

The coach has lost me. I just don't understand some of his decisions. I would love to see more emotion from the bench. Get upset with the refs when you don't agree with a bs call. Let's see something out there, something to stir up some fire in the bellies of the team.
