Tim Thomas


Former Conn Smythe Trophy winner Tim Thomas is looking to make his return to the NHL next season following a year of self-imposed absence from the league.

Thomas' agent, Bill Zito, announced his client's intentions via his Twitter account Monday afternoon.
"Tim Thomas has asked me to explore possible options for next season. We'll have no further comment at this time. Thanks," Zito tweeted.

Judging from the announcement, the 39-year-old Thomas appears to be ready to hit the market as an unrestricted free agent on July 5, which means the New York Islanders have chosen not to toll his contract for next season.

The Islanders acquired the controversial goaltender this season in a trade with the Boston Bruins -- a move largely believed to be a beneficial salary-cap transaction for both teams -- though Thomas refused to report to New York and was subsequently suspended by the team.

Neither Islanders officials nor Zito could be immediately reached for comment.
