Tim Thomas has been traded to the New York Islanders, according to the Boston Bruins. Thomas spent eight seasons with the Bruins, posting a 196-121-0-45 record to go with a 2.48 goals-against average. The Flint, Mich. native was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques in the ninth round (217th overall) of the 1994 NHL entry draft. During his B’s career, Thomas won two Vezina Trophies (2009, 2011), the Conn Smythe Trophy (2011), the William M. Jennings Trophy (2009) and a Stanley Cup (2011), among his many Black and Gold accomplishments. He also led the NHL in both save percentage and GAA in both 2009 and 2011 and has 31 career regular-season shutouts and six postseason shutouts to his name. According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, Boston did not need Thomas’ permission to make this trade and the netmider does not intend to play this season. Just so people are clear, Tim Thomas still doesn’t plan on playing this season. This a cap move by the Isles. — Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) February 7, 2013 Also, B’s did NOT need Thomas’ permission although they did inform him. Thomas’ no-move clause disappeared after last season — Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) February 7, 2013
