HOFer Thomas breaks silence, fine with seclusion

Controversial former NHL star Tim Thomas offered his first public comments in several years on Wednesday, after being named to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.

"Everybody probably knows nowadays I don't have that much to say, at least publicly," said Thomas, the former Boston Bruins goalie who stepped away from public life after his final NHL season in 2013-14. "I've decided to keep whatever I've been doing in my life to myself, probably forever."

Thomas' career saw him rise from journeyman status to become a two-time Vezina Trophy winner and Stanley Cup champion.
