from Sean Gregory of Time,
As if leading the Bruins to their first Cup in 39 years wasn’t surreal enough, at the NHL awards show in Las Vegas a few days after Boston’s victory, some skinny guy with long hair approached Thomas on the red carpet. “He was like, ‘hey, congratulations,” says Thomas, who was MVP of last season’s playoffs. ‘I followed your career the whole way, this and that.’” I was like, ‘thanks.’ He was like, ‘you don’t remember me, do you?’” I’m like, ‘no.’” He goes, ‘I lived on your floor freshman year, at the University of Vermont, two doors town from you.’” I was like, ‘Tex?’ And I never put two and two together that this guy was Dierks Bentley, the country singer. It was pretty cool.’”
While Thomas is reveling in his new fame, he’s not immune to the shocks hitting hockey.
