The Adirondack Thunder have re-signed defenseman Darian Skeoch for the 2024-25 season. Skeoch was acquired by Adirondack in exchange for future considerations, and it ended up being Bryce Martin. In 174 ECHL games with the Indy Fuel, Allen Americans, Savannah Ghost Pirates, and Adirondack Thunder, the Ontario native has scored four goals and 20 assists for 24 points and 472 PIMS. He has added one assist in 24 career Kelly Cup Playoff Games.

“We are thrilled to have Darian Skeoch as our first signing of the summer,” said Head Coach Pete MacArthur.  “Skeoch joined us via trade prior to Christmas and made an immediate impact on and off the ice here in Adirondack. We are excited to continue working with the toughest guy, and top leader in the ECHL.”

This is a huge signing for Adirondack. Skeoch was a huge part of the Thunder’s success last season. He was a leader on and off the ice and had no problem throwing his body around. He won’t be a guy who is going to find himself on the scoresheet a lot, but his presence and physical play certainly makes up for that. Head Coach Pete MacArthur mentioned in his Facebook Live that the plan is to continue to build the team around players like Skoech, who are tough to play against. There’s no question that the Adirondack Thunder wouldn’t have had the success that they had last year without the help of Darian Skeoch.
