Robert Thomas is another name to remember coming out of the Knights program. He is a smooth playmaking Centre who has good speed and a real soft touch with the puck. Always thinking pass first and has tripled his point production from last season. Plays a key role on the power play and penalty kill, earning that extra time by never giving up on plays. He has real slick hands and can stickhandle through defenders keeping his head up while still making a pass going at top speed. Has a real deceptive shot that he should start using more. Has worked on his two-way game and has been effective in the face off circle. A future captain who plays with passion and leaves it all on the ice
