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

Perhaps Tim Thomas [1] 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 [2] (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 [3]. 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 [4] in 2011. He turned 39 years old in April.
