07:23 AM ET 09.11 | With camps opening this week and jobs to fill, Tim Thomas may be nearing his return to the National Hockey League. According to an NHL source, Thomas' camp is in discussions with multiple teams about a possible contract or professional tryout in training camp. Interested teams would prefer to get Thomas in on a tryout considering he spent the last year away from hockey with his family, but there may be enough interest in the goalie for him to land a guaranteed deal, likely a one-year veteran contract with bonuses. Thomas' preference is to return as a starter. A league source told ESPN.com that the Florida Panthers are one of the teams considering Thomas for a tryout. Minor knee surgery for backup Scott Clemmenson increases the urgency in Florida, where Jacob Markstrom is expected to be the No. 1 goalie.

Kind of sad really. His future took place 2 years ago and the Panthers aren't gonna be a platform for him to reach greatness, especially at his age.
