Wichita, KS (Nov. 17th) - The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers, AHL's Bakersfield Condors and powered by Toyota, announced today that the team has acquired forward Ralph Cuddemi from the Fort Wayne Komets in exchange for forward Louick Marcotte. Cuddemi, 24, is in his second full season as a pro. A native of Concord, Ontario, the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder started his career with the Florida Everblades before being dealt to the Utah Grizzlies last October.

Prior to turning pro, Cuddemi played four years at Canisius College. He served as the team's captain during his senior year and tallied 42 points (20g, 22a) in 39 games. He led the Golden Griffins in goals in each of the last three seasons and won a AHA Championship in 2013. Cuddemi was named to two AHA Second All-Conference teams during his career.
