200 - Stefan Fournier appeared in his 200th ECHL game on Friday night. He scored twice and added a fight. Fournier followed that up with a Gordie Howe hat trick on Sunday. He took over the team-lead in goals with 15 and is a +17 (new career high).

ROOKIE - Jay Dickman broke out of a small scoring slump in a big way on Sunday. He had four points (2g, 2a) and his second game-winner of the season. The Bemidji State product moved back into second place in the rookie scoring race with 26 points and is tied for first in goals by a rookie with 11.

OMAHA - Evan Weninger went 3-0-0 this past week in the net for the Thunder. He stopped 109 of 117 shots in his three starts, good for a 2.67 goals-against average and .931 save percentage. Weninger is tied for first in wins (15), second in minutes played (1,487), first in saves (817) and third in save percentage (.925). 

SEASON HIGH - Wichita set a new season-high on Sunday, scoring four goals in the third period. The Thunder power play also equaled a season-high, going 2-for-6 on the man advantage. 

JAM-PACKED - The Thunder continues their busy month of March with four more games this week. Wichita has played at least four games since the week of February 22.
