Tyce Thompson
Dan Hickling -- Elite Prospects

Fantasy Summary

There exists minimal fantasy value in Thompson but could be a decent enough player in 4-5 years.


Click to Expand

February 2024 – Thompson was traded to the New York Islanders in an exchange of AHL forwards attempting to make the NHL in November. Thompson has looked good at times but struggled this season. Perhaps a change of scenery can help him. Pat Quinn


March 2022 – Thompson earned himself another two NHL games this year, and the 22-year-old wasn’t able to get on the scoresheet. In seven games with Utica, though, that hasn’t been an issue at all, as the prospect has kept up a point-per-game rate through seven matches at the AHL level. He had surgery in November and hasn’t been back since, but was cleared for contact practice earlier in the month — he’ll likely need a conditioning stint with the Comets before being called back up. Hadi Kalakeche


April 2021 – Thompson has signed his entry-level contract and appeared in his first four NHL games, registering an assist in his first game and being kept off the scoresheet since. He is being eased in by Lindy Ruff, with under 10 minutes a game in his first three appearances, and then 11:24 against Pittsburgh on April 11th. Hopefully, he earns his way off the fourth line soon, as many young, energetic forwards now await him in the top-9 since Palmieri and Zajac’s departures to Long Island. Hadi Kalakeche


March 2020 – Thompson cooled off a bit over the final nine games of the Providence season but the center still racked up seven more points (two goals, five assists). More encouraging, Thompson increased his shots and chance volume as well while playing more steadily defensively.  Chris Wassel 


January 2020 – Thompson emphatically answered our question from November and now has 17 goals and 20 assists in just 25 games. He is averaging nearly 1.5 points per game in his sophomore year for Providence. New Jersey may have found a real gem here and his upside climbs by the game.  Chris Wassel


November 2019 – Thompson has dazzled some with his surprise hot start – seven goals and seven assists in eight games. He is playing top-line minutes and cashing in on his chances. The question is can he sustain this run of brilliant play. Chris Wassel


June 2019 — Thompson had a decent season with Providence totaling 25 points in 42 games. He will likely keep playing in Providence this season to develop the other aspects of his game.  Chris Wassel
