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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
