Montreal Canadiens assign right-winger Christian Thomas to AHL Hamilton

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens assigned right-winger Christian Thomas to the American Hockey League's Hamilton Bulldogs on Friday.

Thomas, the son of former NHL forward Steve Thomas, has returned from an injury suffered in training camp.

The 21-year-old was acquired July 2 from the New York Rangers in exchange for prospect Danny Kristo. Thomas played one game for the Rangers last season.

On Thursday, the Bulldogs released forward Akim Aliu, who had been on a professional player tryout contract.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
