Thunder Hockey Releases Regular Season Schedule for 2016-17

The Wheaton Thunder have released their schedule for the upcoming season.  Wheaton will start out the season with games against some new faces in WashU and Augustana.  They will also face old rivals in NIU and Robert Morris University.  The Thunder will only have two home games in the 2016 portion of the schedule, both coming against Lewis, but the second half of the season will consist of five home games in six total match ups, where they will face Northern Illinois, Western, and Robert Morris during that stretch.  February 4th, the final regular season game, is expected to be Senior Night, and every Friday home game will be followed with a free fan skate.  Wheaton will be led by captain Brant Goodrich, as well as assistant captains Spencer Graf and Davis Melin, and are looking to earn a playoff push this season after being eliminated from contention in the final weekend of last year’s regular season action.
