Christian Thomas is bringing a bronze back to northeast Pennsylvania.
The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins forward captured the bronze medal as part of the Canadian men’s ice hockey team at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Canada defeated the Czech Republic, 6-4, on Saturday to claim the medal, with former Penguins forward Andrew Ebbett (2013-15) picking up a pair of goals in the game.
Thomas appeared in all six of the Canadians’ contests, recording two points (1+1) and a plus-3 rating. He tallied his goal in a 4-0 win over the Republic of Korea in group play.
In his first season with the Penguins, Thomas has recorded 21 points (12+9) in 30 AHL games this season. The 25-year old from Toronto, Ontario has 177 career points (88+89) in 314 AHL contests with six teams.
The Penguins next home game is this Sunday, February 25, when they host the Hershey Bears at 3:05pm. It’s another Kids Free Sunday, with fans ages 14 and younger able to get into the game for FREE with a paid adult ticket.
