TheFourthPeriod.com

It appears the Florida Panthers are set on signing unrestricted free agent goaltender Tim Thomas to a one-year contract, something that could happen in the coming days.

Thomas joined the Panthers' training camp on a professional tryout agreement, upon which TFP learned that a one-year deal has already been ironed out, pending his performance.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Thomas is indeed likely to sign a contract.

"Mentioned it last night, but sounds like Tim Thomas could\will play tomorrow for Panthers. Contract must be close," Dreger tweeted this morning.

Thomas missed all of last season for personal reasons and has been trying to get back into the NHL.

The two-time Vezina Trophy winner and 2010-11 Conn Smythe Trophy winner has played in eight NHL seasons, all with the Boston Bruins, and has compiled a 196-121-45 record with a 2.48 goals-against-average, a .921 save percentage and 31 shutouts.
