Wichita, KS (Oct. 8th) - The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the Ottawa Senators and powered by Toyota, will host the Allen Americans tonight in their only exhibition tune-up before the season opener. This is the second-straight season that the two teams will face-off against each other in preseason action. The Thunder won last year by the score of 7-2.
Wichita is led by Head Coach Malcolm Cameron, who is in his first season behind the Thunder bench. The Americans are coming off their second consecutive Kelly Cup title run this past season and are led by Head Coach Steve Martinson.
Joining the Thunder tonight will be Louick Marcotte and Alexis Vanier. Both were released from their tryout agreements with the Binghamton Senators and are expected to be in the line-up tonight.
Tickets are just $10 and can be purchased at the door. The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. at the Wichita Ice Center.
The Thunder kicks off their 25th Anniversary season on Saturday, October 15th against the Tulsa Oilers. Season tickets are on sale now. Place a $25 deposit for up to four seats and pay it off in 14 payments. Contact a Thunder representative at the office today.
