Felly is back!

The Soo Thunderbirds have announced on Monday that defenceman Kolby Fellinger will be returning to the team for the 2023-2024 season.

Fellinger, who is a 2003-birth-year defenceman, will also be entering his final season of junior hockey.

“It’s great to welcome back such an important piece to our team in Kolby,” said Soo Thunderbirds assistant coach and general manager Jamie Henderson. “He (Kolby) sets the tone in practice and with such a young group this season, his leadership will be very important.”

“Kolby is one of those people who brings a great spirit to the rink everyday and gives off a great vibe, and we’re thrilled to have him back for one more season.”

In his first two seasons played with the T-Birds from 2021-2023, Fellinger has recorded 2 goals and 25 assists through 82 career games.

He was also part of the T-Birds Copeland Cup McNamara Trophy winning team in his rookie season with them back in 2021-2022.

“I’m happy to be coming back to the T-Birds for my final year of junior hockey,” Fellinger said. “Even though we don’t have many returning players, I still have high hopes and we will all come together as to make everything work.”

“When you’re a veteran on a team, it’s always important to show the younger players the ropes and that’s what I plan to do, so – TBOT!,”
