Thomas was drafted in the third round, 56th overall, by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. He played 39 games with the Sabres over two seasons, 1992–93 and 1993–94.
Thomas then spent several seasons playing in the International Hockey League. He returned to the National Hockey League late in his career, appearing in 24 games with the Los Angeles Kings in 2000–01. Thomas scored the first goal of the "Stunner at Staples" play-off game in which Los Angeles rallied to beat the Detroit Red Wings after being down 3-0 with 6:07 remaining in the game. The Kings would eventually win the series in six games.
Thomas and Peter Ciavaglia had been the only two Buffalo-area natives to play for the Buffalo Sabres until Patrick Kaleta made his debut as a Sabre during the 2006–07 season. Tim Kennedy also played for his home town Buffalo Sabres.
