Tim Thomas, former Boston Bruins goaltender, is reportedly seeking a return to the NHL after his season-long hiatus, according to the bostonglobe.com.
Thomas, who took a year out from professional hockey to spend time with his family has supposedly informed his agent of a desire to return to the NHL.
Due to a transaction between former club Bruins and the New York Islanders, wherein Thomas was transferred to the Islanders in order for them to meet the leagues minimum $44 million wage cap, before never making an appearance, Thomas is an unrestricted free-agent as of July 5.
Despite having had no forthcoming offers as of yet, ESPN reporter Jimmy Murphy tweeted: "Per NHL source teams are interested in signing Tim Thomas for upcoming season but other dominoes must fall first before he would be signed."
The majority consensus is that there are few, if any, teams that are in need of a number two goaltender, let alone a first choice on, so it may be slim-pickings for 39-year-oldThomas.
