Thompson, a senior out of Traverse City, has seven points in his first five games.
The assistant captain has made some key dishes in the early season that have helped junior forward Justin Buzzeo get off to an identical three-goal and four- assist start to the season.
Thompson was the leading scorer last season among returning players.
The senior has played on both the powerplay and the penalty kill in the first few games, where he has shown both his speed for a big man as well as his versatility.
Thompson and the Bulldogs return to action Oct. 25 at Alabama-Hunstville, where puck drop is scheduled for 8:07 p.m.
