ECHL: Adirondack Thunder Transactions | 05/18/2024

Adirondack Thunder Head Coach Pete MacArthur mentioned that he was planning on making some changes prior to Game 2 as the Adirondack Thunder have activated two players from reserve while also sending to players to reserve.

Who’s In?

The two rookies are back in the lineup as Alex Young and Mac Welsher will be back in the lineup after missing the opening game of the Eastern Conference Final.

Young has yet to find the scoresheet during the Kelly Cup Playoffs, but he had a really strong game 7 vs. Norfolk Admirals, where he had a lot of good looks.

Welsher has played in ten games during the Kelly Cup Playoffs, with all three of his points being helpers. The 25-year-old center had three goals and three assists with the Thunder in 13 regular season games after finishing his final year of eligibility at Merrimack College.

Who’s Out?

Matt Stief heads to reserve after being a healthy scratch for Adirondack in Game 1. Stief had a solid year for Adirondack, leading all blueliners in points, putting up four goals, and 31 assists for 35 points in 70 games during the regular season. The Florida defenseman has played in six Kelly Cup Playoff Games this year, and the Thunder have not lost in the playoffs when he’s been in the lineup.

Travis Broughman heads to reserve as he’s played in 10 games during the Kelly Cup Playoffs, putting up a goal and four assists for five points, including four assists in his last six games. This doesn’t come as much of a shock as Broughman was one of the extra forwards in last night’s game.
