Thomas to join Panthers on ice Tuesday

Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon told reporters Monday that goaltender Tim Thomas will be on the ice for training camp Tuesday after joining the team on a professional tryout.

The 39-year-old goaltender passed his physical Monday.

"He's a two-time Vezina Trophy winner, a Conn Smythe Trophy winner," Tallon told reporters. "We need goaltending. We need somebody to help us get to where we need to get to. Right now it's Tim Thomas. He's going to get an opportunity."

Thomas, 39, was named the League's top goalie in 2009 and 2011. He backstopped the Boston Bruins to the 2011 Stanley Cup, and along the way became the second goalie in NHL history to win the Vezina, Conn Smythe Trophy and Stanley Cup in the same season.

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
