The Adirondack Thunder will welcome Brendan Less to their blueline when the 2023-24 season begins in October. Adirondack may be a new team for Less, but Less mentioned that having some familiar faces in the locker room will help with the transition, “Ya, of course, I think whenever you can have some familiarity in the locker room just heading in, it’s a little always a little nerve-racking, joining a new team and not knowing any of the guys too well, Ya, obviously knowing a couple of guys in the room already definitely helps it will help me accumulate to the new environment obviously, I know Grant (Jozefek) and Ryan (Wheeler) pretty well, it definitely helps, I feel pretty comfortable heading into next year” said Less.
Less is excited about coming to Adirondack and believes that he’s going to fit in well with Adirondack, “I was just looking for what would be a good fit for me, I think just looking at what Adirondack was able to do last year, they had a great second half of the year; for me, I just want to come in, and build off their success last year and help this team any way I can” said, Less. When asked about what he’s looking forward to most about being in Adirondack, his answer was simple, “I wanna win; we have a good team, we have a good group of guys, it seems, Ya, they had a pretty good second half of the season, and hopefully, I can help them win a championship.”.
Prior to going pro, Less spent three years at Dartmouth but would really break out in his final year of eligibility when he transferred to Quinnipiac; in 39 games with the Bobcats, Less put up four goals and 16 assists for 20 points, he had two goals, and 14 assists for 16 points 86 games over the course of his three years at Dartmouth, “It was a great experience, I think, playing at Dartmouth for four years and Quinnipiac for a year, I definitely had different experiences, but I think I was able to learn a lot, I was able to improve as a player, I couldn’t be more grateful for the experience I had at both programs, I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of both programs” Less said.
