Default World Jr Hockey (Thomas and Tomasino)

This past summer, it was pretty obvious that Dale Hunter really liked Thomas’ game. Hunter was playing Thomas Top 6 forward minutes and had him on the number one PP and PK units. Akil Thomas followed his impressive play at the World Junior Showcase this summer, with another impressive international game with coach Dale Hunter behind the bench.

Last night’s performance can only improve Thomas’ shot of making Canada’s world junior team and along with his early season play - increase his trade value.

2019 WORLD JR SUMMER SHOWCASE REPORT
Thomas was engaged in all three zones, making smart plays and getting involved rather than lurking on the perimeter. His ability and willingness to play up and down the lineup, in whatever position he’s asked to take, could bode well for him being selected to represent Canada at the upcoming World Juniors tournament. “I can take faceoffs, I can play center, I can play wing, I can be a power forward, I can be a playmaker,” Thomas said in describing his versatility.

He also caught the eye of the broadcast team (Craig Button), “Akil Thomas is having an unbelievably great game.”

—- IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR———
It's World Junior Training time, everybody! It starts here - World Junior Selection Camp. And this is the time of year that the Christmas commercials have started, Christmas movies are starting to pop up on the channel guide, and one’s thoughts start turning to who might make Team Canada’s roster. In addition, the World Junior Trade Freeze. And when that thaws, the trades usually start flowing like a fire hose. And does Akil Thomas’ performance from now until December 26 result in a very big trade occurring that won’t be announced until January?
I have to think that seeds are now being planted that lead to conversations that culminate in those trades happening. GMs that aren’t happy with the starts their teams have had since September are starting to make those calls.

All interested GMs at this point know the asking price for Akil Thomas (especially if he makes Team Canada):
<> 03 1st round pick, 2 x 2nd and 2 x 3rd

Cole Perfetti (Saginaw) and Akil Thomas looked good together last night.
