Steve Zipay at Blue Notes confirms that Thomas has signed a three-year, entry-level deal reportedly worth an average of $838,333 if he makes the team; $67,000 per season if he is in the AHL. If he plays more than nine NHL games, he loses his junior eligibility.
Look for the #Rangers to announce 2nd round pick Christian Thomas has signed a 3 year entry level contract.
...absolutely loving this. Hagelin, McIlrath, Bourque, Horak and now Thomas. Life is good in Rangersland.
...with Thomas' scoring ability (54 goals last year) I think the Rangers will give him a long look at camp. From that point it will be up to him to prove he belongs. If he doesn't impress he'll be back in the OHL for another year.
