Thomas Out With Knee Surgery

December 12, 2000

By Tom Keppeler, Knee1 Staff

Toronto Maple Leafs right wing Steve Thomas underwent surgery Monday to remove loose bodies in his right knee.

The 27-year-old English native was pulled off the active list two weeks ago after complaining of knee pain. Thomas' de-activation was unexpected and hoped against, especially given his performance over the past two years. Over the past two seasons, he has scored 54 goals and 136 points since returning to Toronto.

The 180-pound, 5-foot-10 right wing will be sidelined at least six weeks while he recovers from the procedure.

Thomas played for Toronto from 1984 to 1986 before leaving for stints with Chicago, New York (Islanders) and New Jersey. He returned to Toronto in 1998.
