This may not be breaking news to some of you, but I just read this this morning. I apologize for the delay in bringing it to you!
The Alaska Aces held open tryouts in their camp on Friday. Thompson, along with Scott Gomez and Washington’s Joey Crabb, tried out. All three of the NHLers are from Anchorage, Alaska. They were added to the team’s camp roster. All of this is coming as reality of the lockout sinks in even more. The regular season is set to open in ten days. They will start canceling regular season games this week if no agreement is met for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).
