Tim Thomas' agent, Bill Zito, has announced that his client is interested in returning to action next season - one team that seems to be interested; The Philadelphia Flyers.

Thomas' agent sent out this tweet: "Tim Thomas has asked me to explore possible options for next season. We'll have no further comment at this time. Thanks."

As discussed by ESPNNY.com's Katie Strang, the Philadelphia Flyers are one of several teams that may have an interest in Thomas.

And given the Flyers desire to acquire a goaltender to pair up with Steve Mason, Thomas may be on the Flyers' immediate radar. Multiple reports have also indicated that the Flyers have interest in Evgeni Nabokov, who is not expected to re-sign with the New York Islanders.

So with the list of free agent goaltenders dwindling by the day, would Tim Thomas be of interest to Flyers fans?
