The Adirondack Thunder ECHL Hockey Team at the Cool Insuring Arena

The Adirondack Thunder are the proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Calgary Flames. The Thunder join the ECHL for their inaugural season in 2015-16, the first for ECHL Hockey at the Cool Insuring Arena after 33 years at the AHL and UHL levels.

The ECHL franchise was announced on January 30, 2015 when the Calgary Flames announced that they would move their ECHL team from Stockton, CA to Glens Falls, NY. The team name “Thunder”, along with the logo and colors were unveiled on February 11, 2015. The Thunder named their first Head Coach, Cail MacLean, on July 23, 2015 in a press conference in Heritage Hall at the arena. The team is slated to open its inaugural season on October 24 against Manchester.

The Thunder are the sixth professional team to call the Cool Insuring Arena home, as they join the Adirondack Red Wings, Adirondack IceHawks, Adirondack Frostbite, Adirondack Phantoms and Adirondack Flames in the storied tradition of hockey in Glens Falls.
