  • 2018-01-13 at Ilves - TUTO Hockey, U20 by Asko Huuki

    Thomson got two goals and assist and played for almost 25 minutes in a game Ilves won 5-0. Both defender’s goals were slapshots which could have had more punch but were accurate enough to go past the goalie. These weren’t the only times when he was able to shoot the puck through the traffic either.

    Thomson is active and mobile defenceman who showed good agility and top speed. In this game Ilves was dominant and Thomson wasn’t tested much defensively but he was able to show his offensive skills. Even though his dekes weren’t always effective, he carried the puck with a lot of confidence and that aspect combined with above average skating and good passing abilities created a lot of offense for his team. However I thought that Thomson was thinking offense a bit too much in this game and especially in the beginning of the game he left his man unguarded too often. This caused some dangerous counter attacks when player from TUTO Hockey got the puck at his side when Thomson was in the incorrect position.

    He also seemed to get easily frustrated despite the five-goal lead and while I like that he has grit in his game, showing grit outside the play when the game was already resolved seemed unnecessary. Overall Thomson seems to have a lot of good tools and even though he needs to adjust his play when he enters pro game, he could become pretty good defenceman in the future if he learns to use his strengths properly.

    Thomson looked good in a game where the rest of his team really didn’t. Ilves lost to Jokerit 1-6 but Thomson managed a +1 plus-minus reading.

    He played a simple game, kept good gap control and had an active stick. He showed good explosiveness as well as good edge work when skating.

    Offensively he gave the easy first pass and didn’t try to play too complicated game in any situation.
