August 8th, 2021 @ Team Alberta Tryout: In game one, Garrett Thom didn’t play up to his capabilities. He wasn’t moving his feet well and didn’t create many chances. He did display decent hands and pushed the pace occasionally. However, in game two, Thom was the difference-maker. He got his feet moving, had much more lateral movement, and possessed tons of speed. The hands were on display again and he made a lot of plays by dragging in the defenceman then dishing the puck off. He battled around the boards and showed a high compete level. His best chances were when he drove himself inside and attacked the net directly. Overall, Thom is at his best when he’s pushing the pace and playing aggressive. – Liam Horrobin
