Report: Ex-Bruin Tim Thomas might return to pro hockey next season

Perhaps Tim Thomas  is not done with professional hockey after all.
CBC’s Elliotte Friedman said that while Thomas’ agent says everything is still the status quo, it would not be surprising to see Thomas make a comeback in 2013-14  (skip to 4:32 in the video).
If Thomas does make a comeback, it does not necessarily mean he will be returning to the NHL . Friedman’s sources indicated Thomas could head to Europe. Thomas played four seasons in Finland’s SM-liiga and one season in Sweden’s Elitserien between 1997 and 2005 before spending seven seasons with the Bruins.
The Islanders traded for Thomas’ rights this season and have the right to toll his contract to the 2013-14 season because he refused to report this season.
Thomas, a two-time Vezina Trophy winner and the 2011 Conn Smythe Trophy winner, led the Bruins to a Stanley Cup  in 2011. He turned 39 years old in April.
