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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
