The Arizona Coyotes reached their 23-man roster limit by recalling Christian Thomas on Sunday.

Thomas was traded to Arizona from Montreal for Lucas Lessio in mid-December.

The 40th pick of the 2010 NHL Draft generated two assists in five NHL games with the Habs. He’s been productive in the AHL, as well, playing nicely despite being on two AHL rosters and maybe soon-to-be two NHL teams.

Arizona plays two games before the All-Star break, including a Monday contest. We’ll see if Thomas debuts then, or if this was just a call up to get a look at the forward.
