Thompson Officially Retires



Nate Thompson, who played 844 games in the NHL for the Lightning, the Ducks, the Islanders, the Kings, the Canadiens, the Flyers, the Bruins, the Senators, and the Jets, has formally retired.

"From the time I was 4 until 38 hockey has been my life and best friend. I'm beyond grateful and thankful for all the great people I've met and friendships I've made. All good things must come to an end so thank you to all who supported me along this journey.✌🏼❤️"




In his career, he scored 164 points, but his impact goes beyond that as he was a supporter of people struggling with addiction. He is known to have battled addiction himself during his career.

Let's send our best wishes to Thompson and his family!
