The Thunder open league play this weekend with a pair of games against the Eagles of Robert Morris University Black. This begins a three game home-stand that will continue next weekend when Wheaton plays host to Loyola University. Come see the Thunder this Friday at 8:50pm and Saturday at 9:00pm. Both games will be played at Center Ice of DuPage with a Fan Skate to follow Friday nights game.
The Wheaton Thunder Hockey Team began its 2013-2014 campaign with a trip south for a pair of non-confernce games, taking on the Cougars of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. Despite dropping their opening games, the Thunder coaching staff had an opportunity to watch and evaluate the additions to this year’s squad and make adjustments before league play begins. The Thunder will open its season at home Fri. 11/1 & Sat. 11/2 with a pair of non-league games against UW Milwaukee.
This annual trip for the boys in orange and blue provides the team with a great early season experience and time away from school together. As always, the Thunder were hosted by 1973 Alum, Larry Absheer, and the Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis. Mr. Absheer has been a staunch supporter of Wheaton Athletics and especially Wheaton Hockey over the years. The Thunder are very thankful for his generosity and support.
The 2013-2014 Schedule is now up!! The season is quickly approaching as the Thunder look to build off of last season’s successes with the addition of some new faces.
The Thunder concluded their 2012-2013 campaign riding a four game win streak and finishing with a .500 record. Senior leadership from captains Michael Cimmarrusti and Eric Demitrack will be missed, along with all the departing seniors. Thank you to our departing seniors and everyone who has and continues to support us.
