SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Tim Thomas is officially back in the NHL.
The Stanley Cup-winning goalie signed a one-year contract Thursday with the Florida Panthers, a move that was expected for several days. Financial terms were not released.
The 39-year-old Thomas took last season off, then decided he was ready to return to hockey.
His signing is part of a busy week for the Panthers. The team will introduce Vincent Viola as its new owner on Friday, a person familiar withi the situation told The Associated Press.
Thomas has played in 378 NHL games, all with Boston. He's stopped 92 percent of the shots he has faced, with a 2.48 goals-against average. He led the Bruins to the 2011 Stanley Cup.
