Thompson has stepped up in a big way for the Golden Knights as the starting goalie, and has performed admirably in his first full rookie season. Thus far Thompson has posted a line of 18-9-0 with a 2.61 goals against average, a .915 save percentage and 2 shutouts.
There was a lot of uncertainty when it was announced that Robin Lehner would miss the entire season, and Thompson has handled things very well.
The rosters aren’t completely finalized, and if you want to send another Golden Knights to Florida, you can do so by voting and voicing your opinion on Twitter.
Under the new voting format, the 12 remaining players (two skaters, one goalie per division) will be selected through the 2023 Honda All-Star Fan Vote presented by Guaranteed Rate, which will begin at 9 p.m. Thursday and run through Jan. 17 at midnight ET. In previous seasons, fan-elected captains were voted before hockey operations chose the remaining rosters (not limited to one player per team) and fans chose a final player (Last Men In) for each team.
For the first time, the fan vote will feature a Twitter Vote, which begins Jan. 12, at 12:01 a.m. ET and ends Jan. 14, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Each fan tweet must include the complete hashtag “#NHLAllStarVote” followed by a player’s full name or a player’s Twitter handle. Only referencing a last name will not count. All Twitter votes will be combined with online vote totals.
The three remaining players per team will be announced on Jan. 19.
Stay tuned for more information, and be sure to vote early and often to get some more Golden Knights selected.
