March 2023 – Thurn was traded to the San Jose Sharks for a 3rd round selection in 2024. The defenseman moves to a similar team in the standings but one with less competition on teh back end. He could flourish here, if he signs. Pat Quinn

February 2023 – Thrun has announced that he will not be signing with the Anaheim Ducks. The smart offensive defenseman has had a strong NCAA career, and will be a hot commodity in free agency. Aaron Itovitch

May 2022 – Further to the below note, as part of Team USA Thrun was thrust into the role of shutdown defenseman and he embraced it well, showing the defensive side to his game. After playing in the USHL for a year thanks to COVID shutting down the program at Harvard, Thrun returned for his sophomore season and dominated offensively. He finished seventh in the nation in scoring amongst defensemen. He will return to Harvard for his junior year and  has already been named Team Captain. – Dobber

December 2020 – Thrun has officially made Team USA. This is a huge accomplishment for the Massachusetts native as many people are starting to recognize the talent the Harvard defenseman possesses. Lucas Main

December 2020 – In his first collegiate season, Thrun registered 21 points in 31 games and made the ECAC All-Rookie Team. The former 4th round pick has also made Team USA’s preliminary roster for the 2021 World Junior Championship. Many thought he was benefitting from playing on a stacked USNTDP, but in fact he may have been one of the reason’s that team experienced so much success. Keep him on your radar as he continues to rise. Lucas Main

March 2020 – Playing on a USNTDP filled with first round talent, Thrun flew under the radar. The Anaheim Ducks selected him in the fourth round and he currently plays in the NCAA for Harvard University. He contributes in all three zones, providing crisp breakout passes and the ability to skate with the puck from end to end. He has good size (6-foot-1), but could stand to gain some weight to win more puck battles. Lucas Main
