Short stature Christian Thomas, standing at 5’9 (well, short compared to many NHL players), has been drafted by the NY Rangers in the 2010 entry draft, going 40th overall. As son of Steve Thomas, I’m sure some scouts looked at him due to his father’s great NHL career, but I’m positive many others looked at him because he has been among the best during his junior year in hockey based on a post-season poll by coaches. Some of those categories included most improved, hardest shot, best shot and best stickhandler, all great qualities in a young player!
