Wichita Thunder

Thunder’s drastic drop leaves Kevin McClelland pondering changes

April 5 at 10:43 p.m.

Kevin McClelland is committed to improving the Thunder, even if Wichita’s hockey coach isn’t committed to any certainty regarding his status beyond the recently completed season.

    A potential playoff push needed to start soon for the Wichita Thunder. They may have gotten that start Friday night.

  • Thunder returns home looking to end losing streak

    The Thunder’s hockey season has reached a level of monotony where even potential positives become more repetitive than encouraging.
