Submitted By YSE on Saturday, June 24, 2017
On behalf of the entire York Simcoe Express family, congratulations to YSE alumni Robert Thomas who was drafted in the 1st round, 20th overall, by the St. Louis Blues in the 2017 NHL Draft last night.

Thomas, of Aurora, enjoyed a successful minor hockey career with YSE before playing the past two seasons with the London Knights of the OHL. While with London, Thomas was a member of the 2015 Memorial Cup Champion team as well as representing Canada with the gold medal winning U17 World Hockey Challenge team. He recorded 16 goals and 50 assists this past season with London while adding another 12 points in 14 playoff games for the Knights. The second day of the NHL Draft in Chicago continues today.

Good luck to all YSE alumni eligible for this year's draft.
