Isles Announce Affiliation Agreement with ECHL Stockton Thunder
14 players spent time in both Stockton & Bridgeport last season

The New York Islanders announced today that they have renewed their affiliation agreement with the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL for the 2014-15 season. Along with the American Hockey League’s Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Stockton remains one of the Islanders primary minor league affiliates.

“We are thrilled to once again have the Stockton Thunder as our organization’s ECHL affiliate,” Islanders General Manager Garth Snow said. “The Thunder do a great job of developing players from the ECHL, to the AHL, and eventually the New York Islanders.”

Four Islanders prospects suited up for the Thunder last season, including former third round picks Andrey Pedan, Kirill Kabanov and Jason Clark, along with sixth round pick Alan Quine. All four of those players played in Bridgeport last season, along with 10 other players on the Thunder’s season ending roster, including Riley Wetmore, Mathieu Gagnon, Jeremy Langlois, Ben Rosen, Adam Brace, Sean Escobedo, Marc Cantin, Parker Milner, and the Thunder’s own Joey Martin and Andrew Clark.

“The Islanders were a great partner last season,” Thunder Team President Brian Sandy said.  “On the ice, they provided a steady stream of talent that provided depth to our team.  In the community, they gave the Thunder the flexibility to create the ‘Rough & Ready Islanders’ brand, which was and still is very popular.  We look forward to continuing and growing our relationship.”

Last season, the Islanders suited up five players who played a portion of their careers in the ECHL, including Colin McDonald, who spent time with the Thunder during the 2008-09 season.
