Thunder Take College By Storm

STOCKTON, Calif. – The Stockton Thunder and Stockton Unified School District announced that students who sign up to take the Scholastic Aptitude Test will receive a free ticket to the team’s game on Saturday as part of the “Taking College By Storm” program.

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.
