Wichita Retains His ECHL Rights

Wichita, KS (August 16th) - The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, AHL's Bakersfield Condors and powered by Toyota, announced today that defenseman Travis Brown has signed an American Hockey League contract with the San Antonio Rampage. As a part of a working agreement with the Thunder, Brown will be assigned to Wichita when he is not playing for the Rampage.

"I'm extremely grateful to be joining the St. Louis Blues and San Antonio Rampage organizations," commented Brown. "I give thanks to Head Coach Malcolm Cameron and the Wichita Thunder for providing me with the opportunity to play in all situations to grow my game this past year. I'm excited for to get things going for the upcoming season."

The former Chicago Blackhawks draft pick (2012, round 5, #149) turned pro in 2015-16 when he signed a one year, two-way agreement with the St. John's IceCaps. He played most the season with the Brampton Beast, collecting 22 points (8g, 14a) in 55 games. He also appeared in three games for the IceCaps, adding one goal.
