Delaware Thunder hoping for booming return in 2020-21

Pandemic wiped out franchise's inaguaral season

SALISBURY, Md- After the pandemic swept away the finish of franchise’s first season, the Delaware Thunder are hoping to return for the 2020-2021 season.

Charlie Pens Sr., owner and head coach of the team, says that as long as guidelines allow his team to have a season, his squad will be back. “We hope to start play in the fall, but the reality is we are probably going to start closer to December,” said Pens Sr. “we’ve got to be careful, this is something we’ve never seen before.”

The Federal Prospects Hockey League, (now in its 11th year) was the home of ten teams last season, including Delaware’s first pro hockey team. “We love our fans, we love the area. The players really like it down here,” Pens exclaimed. “The good news is our entire staff is coming back, and myself personally I can’t wait to get back on the ice.”

Like many minor leagues across America, the survival of the league may depend on states independent decisions regarding health and safety of team sports and spectators.
