dfw Report: Stars Trade Backup Ellis For Veteran Goalie Tim ThomasBest Young Athlete In DFW?

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas Stars have acquired Stanley Cup winning goaltender Tim Thomas from the Florida Panthers, according to multiple reports.

The Panthers will reportedly receive Stars backup Dan Ellis in the trade. The 33-year-old Ellis started Tuesday night’s 4-2 loss to Columbus, surrendering four goals on 20 shots.

Thomas will likely backup goaltender Kari Lehtonen, who has started 50 of 62 games, posting a 2.48 GAA.

Thomas is reunited with Stars forward Tyler Seguin. The two were key contributors on Boston’s 2011 Stanley Cup winning team. Thomas won the Conn Smythe Trophy that year as the most valuable player during the playoffs.

The 39-year-old has started 40 games this season, posting a 16-20-3 record with a 2.87 GAA.

Dallas enters Wednesday in the eighth and final playoff position in the Western Conference with 68 points. The team has 20 games remaining.

On Tuesday, the team traded defenseman Stephane Robidas to the Anaheim Ducks for a conditional fourth round selection in the 2014 NHL Draft.

The NHL trade deadline was 3 p.m. ET Wednesday.
