Jeff Beukeboom talked to Blueshirts United and said that one of the players he is most excited to coach is winger Christian Thomas.
He says that Thomas has an advantage in having a father who scored over 400 goals in his NHL career, “As long as he’s open minded and listens—which is the type kid he is—he’ll be fine. I think with his background, that’s a huge plus for him.”
He added, “I know he’s a good kid and he’s willing to work, and learn, and try new things. Any time you have those traits, you’re going to be fine. I think he’s going to adapt fine, and the size thing won’t be such an issue.”
Thomas has been described as having a similar style to his father.
On his best asset, Thomas says “My shot is one of my biggest things, and hopefully that can translate to the NHL level and I can still score goals there.”
