Thomas to be paid same salary as Brodeur
Big news for Bruins fans – and any team looking for a premiere goaltender this summer. According to ESPN’s John Buccigross Thomas and the Bruins have agreed to an extension. The agreement is expected to be announced on Saturday.
Thomas was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after this season. Terms of the deal were unavailable; however, according to sources for the Boston Globe, the deal will pay the 34-year-old backstop approximately the $5.2 million-per-year earned by New Jersey’s Martin Brodeur, age 36, who last month became the game’s all-time winningest goalie.
