The Thunder have many AJHL Alumni on their roster as do the other ACAC teams.
Storm Coach and GM Kevin Higo said, “We are very happy for Ian and his family on selecting where he will play hockey and attend school next year. Through the process Ian has had many opportunities both south of the border as well in Canada. He is a mature young man that looked through his options and made the decision that Concordia University in Edmonton was the best fit for him both academically and hockey wise. Ian has really grown as a player and person over the past 2 years. His work ethic and dedication off the ice has been a example for the younger players on the Storm and he continues to be active in the community and committed to becoming a better hockey player.”
