WICHITA, Kan. (Oct. 22) - The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, AHL's Bakersfield Condors and powered by Toyota, announced today the re-signing of forward Jason Salvaggio for the 2020-21 season.

Salvaggio, 26, returns to Wichita for a third stint. He began the season with the Allen Americans and was acquired back to Wichita in a trade. Salvaggio tallied 34 points (14g, 20a) in 48 games in Thunder blue. Overall, he had 37 points last season, which was good for third on last year's squad.

He won the Paul Hines Award that year, given to the Most Improved Player in New England. He signed an AHL contract with the Hartford Wolfpack and appeared in four games that same year.
