A number of teams and former team-mates were keen to pay tribute to him, who was appreciated wherever he went. I’ve never heard a negative comment about him.
In an interview with La Presse, the young retiree opened up about his time in Montreal and the city in which he “immersed” himself.
“It’s been a privilege to wear this uniform.” – Nate Thompson
He says he learned like a sponge from the attitude of the veterans, including St-Louis, and that’s how he was able to become a role model for the younger players afterwards.
Thompson played almost 1,000 games in the NHL, not bad for a player whose entire career was in doubt. He’s a fine example of perseverance.
