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.

…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.
