Bruins trade goalie Tim Thomas to Islanders

Tim Thomas is headed to the Islanders, the team announced on their verified Twitter account Tuesday.

Boston traded their former goaltender to New York in exchange for a conditional draft pick in 2014 or 2015.

Thomas announced last summer that he was taking a year-long break from hockey.

The 38-year-old is in the final year of his four-year, $20 million current contract, which carries a $5 million cap hit for the 2012-13 season.

More to come.
