When the Boston Bruins visited the White House last year after winning the Stanley Cup, starting goaltender Tim Thomas made headlines by skipping the appearance due to his political beliefs. As it turns out, that was probably the beginning of the end of his time in Boston, and outside of the random Facebook posting we haven't heard much from him over the past months.

On Tuesday, Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Penner decided to poke a little fun at that situation prior to his team's visit to see the president:

Nice.

Oh, and if somebody could get him the Wi-Fi password while he's there, that would be just swell:

Try password. That usually works.
