Thomas, the 2009 Vezina Trophy winner as the NHL’s top goaltender, has represented the United States in six World Championships, winning a bronze medal in 1996.

A graduate from the University of Vermont, Thomas went 81-43-15 with a 2.70 GAA and nine shutouts in 140 career college games. He was named an NCAA All-American and ECAC First Team All-Star in both 1994-95 and 1995-96 and the ECAC Goaltender of the Year in 1995-96.

His reaction to being named a first-time Olympian on Jan. 1 after the Bruins 2-1 win over the Flyers at the Winter Classic at Fenway Park: "This will go down as one of the most memorable days of my life and my career. Between winning and the way that we won, and being named to the U.S. Olympic team, as I've said before, I've been waiting 30 years for this. I feel like I've been waiting my whole life for this opportunity."

Quote of the Day

I didn't even know how to celebrate. I threw my hands up, they gave me a hug, so I guess that's all I needed.

— Sabres forward Tim Schaller on scoring his first NHL goal Sunday against the Bruins
