  • Print

BOSTON -- Tim Thomas says he's taking a year off from hockey.

The Boston Bruins star goaltender confirmed the planned sabbatical on his Facebook page.

Thomas says he plans to focus on "friends, family and faith."

The 38-year-old was named the Conn Smythe Trophy winner after the Bruins' Stanley Cup championship last season.

Thomas also won the Vezina Trophy in 2009 and 2011, and went 35-19-1 with a 2.36 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage in the regular season.

Thomas expressed an interest in playing for the United States in the 2014 Sochi Olympics, which will be two months before he turns 40.
