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.

“Tim is a proven winner who we are pleased to have signed,” said Tallon. “He is a fierce competitor who brings to our club a wealth of experience including a Stanley Cup Championship, two Vezina trophies and a Conn Smythe. 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 led the Bruins to the 2011 Stanley Cup Championship, earning the Conn Smythe Trophy, posting a 16-9-0 post season record with a 1.98 GAA, a .940 save percentage and four shutouts. 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. Jennings Trophy in 2009 for the team with the fewest goals scored against.

The Flint, Michigan native posted back-to-back 35 wins seasons (2010-2012) and has earned at least 25 wins in five of his last six NHL seasons played. Throughout his eight-year NHL playing career, Thomas was selected to the First NHL All-Star Team twice (2009 & 2011), leading the league both seasons in goals against average and save percentage.
