According to Andy Strickland’s blog, the Islanders have claimed Nate Thompson off waivers from the Providence Bruins.

Thompson was drafted in the 6th round 183rd overall in the 2003 draft, he plays center and had 19 goals and 20 assists for 39 points in 75 games with the P-Bruins last season.

Not a bad pickup, obviously this is a Gordon choice with all his experience in the Bruins organization. This will likely fill a void for a centerman down in Bridgeport however.
