Stockton Nears 1,000,000th Fan

STOCKTON, Calif. – The Stockton Thunder announced that they are 4,409 fans shy of their 1,000,000th fan, who will win four Thunder season tickets and a “Stay ‘N Play” package at the Yosemite Lodge in Yosemite National Park.

Stockton is the ECHL affiliate of the Edmonton Oilers of the National Hockey League and Springfield of the American Hockey League. Former ECHL coach Gerry Fleming is an assistant coach for Springfield.

Stockton has led the ECHL in attendance each of its first four seasons, becoming the first team to lead in attendance four years in a row since Florida set the league record with five straight years from 2000-05, and needs only 64,360 fans to reach one million.

The Thunder were presented with the ECHL Team Award of Excellence in 2008-09 and 2006-07.
