Center Nate Thompson of Anchorage is back in the NHL – as this is written, he’s in the lineup for the Boston Bruins, who are entertaining Montreal tonight.
Thompson made his NHL debut last Saturday in Boston, then was returned to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League. According to John Bishop’s blog on www.bostonbruins.com, Thompson got the call Wednesday night that he was promoted again, and drove up from Providence this morning.
Expect Thompson to get a few minutes on the fourth line against Les Habitants. Check out his progress in real time at www.nhl.com
