One of the most beloved Maple Leafs players in recent history has agreed to coach Team Canada at the World Jewish Hockey Tournament in July in Metulla, Israel.
Steve (Stumpy) Thomas, who scored 421 goals in a remarkable National Hockey League career, and was best known for his tenacity and knack for scoring big goals in big games, will head up one Canadian junior team in the five-team, under-17 tournament this summer.
“I’m very excited about this opportunity, flattered to have been chosen, and very excited to be going to Israel for the first time,” said Thomas, 45, who was born in Lockport, England but grew up in Toronto.
