Thunder Open Season on Road
Wheaton will begin the regular season on the road tonight, facing Washington University in St. Louis. This game will be the first MACHA league game for WashU, as they start their inaugural season in the Mid-American Collegiate Hockey Association. The Thunder will look to get a strong start to the season in their opening weekend. With several important losses to graduation over the offseason, Coach Matthew Ference and the rest of the team will look to several key returning players, as well as some incoming freshmen, to step up and fill those roles previously held by players no longer on the roster. The first two games of the season will be important for Wheaton, as they will serve as important litmus tests after three strong weeks of preseason practice.
