Stephney returns to the Thunderbirds

By Matt Stefano

The Soo Thunderbirds are getting a familiar face back!

It was announced today that the club has reacquired forward Gage Stephney from the GOJHL’s St. Catherines Falcons in exchange for a player development fee.

The 19 year old had 4 goals and 2 assists in 7 games with the Falcons this season.

Stephney, who stands 6’1 and 200 lbs, played one season with the Thunderbirds back in  2016-2017, where he scored 16 times and set up 17 others in 48 regular season games.

He also led the Thunderbirds in penalty minutes that season with 56.

The Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario native was drafted by the Oshawa Generals in the 8th round (159th overall) back in 2015.
