SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers Executive VP/General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to terms with G Tim Thomas on a one-year contract.

He is a hardworking, driven and dedicated individual who will help our club achieve future success.”

Thomas, 39, has played in 378 career National Hockey League contests, all with Boston, posting a 196-121-45 all-time mark with a 2.48 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

He is a four-time National Hockey League All-Star (2008, 2009, 2011, 2012) and a two-time Vezina Trophy winner (2009 & 2011). Thomas, along with Manny Fernandez was also awarded the William M.
