The Calgarian’s offensive skills slowly increased and he would find himself in the top ten in Points five straight seasons (1933-34 to 1937-38) with a high of second in 1935-36. That year he was a Second Team All Star and was the NHL leader in Power Play Goals. In the 1937/38 campaign he would have a career high 44 Points with a First Team All Star selection and was the runner-up in Hart Trophy voting. More importantly, Thompson would assist Chicago in winning the 1934 and 1938 Stanley Cup.
After he retired as a player he would coach the Blackhawks for seven seasons after but he was not as successful a coach as he was a player sporting no Stanley Cups and a losing record.Paul Thompson remains arguably one of the few Original Six snubs for the Hockey Hall of Fame.
