Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Cy Thomas
Forward Cy Thomas played a few games for the Chicago Black Hawks and Toronto Maple Leafs in 1947-48. He was a fine goal scorer who could also play a robust style in the corners in a career spent mostly in the minors and senior hockey circles.

Born in Dowlais, Wales, Thomas played junior with the AJHL's Edmonton Canadians before joining the city's senior Flyers the next year. In 1947-48 he scored a goal in six games with Chicago before he was the lesser-known player sent to Toronto along with Max Bentley for five regulars in November. He was used sparingly by the Leafs then sent down to the AHL's Pittsburgh Hornets. Before the end of the season Thomas skated for the Kootenay league's Spokan Flyers.

Thomas bounced around several leagues and played briefly with the University of Alberta and St. Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He retired in 1952 after scoring 24 goals for the Calgary Stampeders of the Pacific Coast League.
