Thompson, 38, skated in 33 NHL games last season with the Philadelphia Flyers, earning a goal and two assists. In his 17-year professional career, Thompson has appeared in 844 NHL games and 221 AHL games.

The Anchorage, Alaska native played for the LA Kings during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 campaigns, playing 79 games for the Reign’s NHL affiliate. Most recently, he signed a PTO with the Kings during the team’s 2022 training camp. Thompson’s career has also included time with the New York Islanders, Tampa Bay Lightning, Anaheim Ducks, Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadians.
