Full schedule here:

Bruins Goaltender Tim Thomas to Take a Year Off

38 year old all-star goaltender of the Boston Bruins will be taking the 2012-2013 season off. His contract expires at the end of that year. It looks like he is planning on either retiring, or playing for another team. With this, there have been speculations about who the starting goaltender will be for next year. Biggest bet's on Tuukka Rask who won the Jennings trophy a couple of years ago. Khudobin will most likely be the backup goalie unless they sign a free agent and Campbell is probably going to be the emergency call up.
