Evansville Thunderbolts are BACK this weekend at the Ford Center with season home opener

Thunderbolts Hockey is BACK! The 2021-2022 season kicked off on Oct. 15 in Illinois against Quad City Storm. Now the Bolts are headed home for their home-opener this weekend Friday, October 22, and Saturday, October 23 at the Ford Center in Downtown Evansville.

The Thunderbolts were quickly on the rise and doing well in the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) when their season was cut short at the start of the pandemic in March of 2020. Then the team announced that they would opt out of the 2020-2021 season, again, because of COVID-19. You can call this season the year of unfinished business.

Needless to say, it has been a long stint without Thunderbolts hockey and we’re sure glad it’s BACK and so is the fun.

The Thunderbolts have a wide variety of fun planned for this season. They are bringing back some of their favorite nights including the Halloween celebration on October 30 and Pink in the Rink on the weekend of February 4th and 5th.
