Thomas "Bomber" Edur (born November 18, 1954) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman.

Playing career

Edur was selected by the Boston Bruins in the third round of the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft, 54th overall, although he made his professional debut in the World Hockey Association with the Cleveland Crusaders rather than in the NHL. After three seasons in the WHA, Edur joined the NHL with the Colorado Rockies.

In July, 1978 at the age of 24, after just two seasons in the NHL (with Colorado and the Pittsburgh Penguins), Edur retired from professional hockey to devote his life to the religion of the Jehovah's Witnesses. Edur felt that he was unable to serve God fully while playing professional hockey. Although he was offered a contract by the Penguins that would have allowed him to skip all games played on Sundays, Edur declined, viewing dedication to God as more than a one day a week obligation.

Edur was later drafted by the Edmonton Oilers when he left the WHA for the NHL, however, he again declined an opportunity to become involved with professional hockey.
