The 2017 Hockey Hall of Fame Class has a very impressive list of characters who look to take the next step in being immortalized forever after their respected playing careers, and one of them is former Boston Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas.

The Flint, Michigan native was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques in the ninth round (217th overall) of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft from the Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut.  He played eight NHL seasons with the Boston Bruins (2005-2012) and split his last year in the league with the Florida Panthers and Dallas Stars (2013-14) before leaving the game for good.

Below are Thomas’s career achievements

Games Played:  426    Wins:  214    Goals Against:  2.52    Save Percentage:  .920

– Played nine seasons with the Boston Bruins, Florida Panthers and Dallas Stars
– Stanley Cup Champion (2011)
– Two-time Vezina Trophy winner (2009 and 2011)
– Conn Smythe Trophy winner (2011)
– William M. Jennings Trophy winner (2009)
– Four-time All-Star (2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012)

Please cast your vote in the poll below if you believe Thomas is Hall of Fame worthy and if so, what time frame?  

Please keep in mind that 2016 goaltending inductee Rogie Vachon who spent 17 seasons in the NHL and was a “three-time” Stanley Cup Champion had to wait 30 years to finally reach the shrine in Toronto.
