WICHITA — With the start of the season just a few months away, the Wichita Thunder added two more players to its roster, re-signing forward Danick Gauthier and signing defenseman Ray Macias.
Gauthier begins his fourth season of professional hockey. He has 46 goals and 64 assists in 164 games. He spent last season with both Wichita and Florida of the ECHL and Syracuse of the American Hockey League. He played in 66 games with Wichita last season, scoring 29 goals with 39 assists, his best professional season.
Gauthier is a native of Brossard, Quebec, Canada.
Macias is a nine-year pro, who began his career in the 2007-08 season. He has played eight NHL games during parts of two seasons with the Colorado Avalanche.
Macias has played in 297 pro games, scoring 37 goals with 83 assists. He spent last season with Utah of the ECHL, playing in 16 games with a goal and an assist.
“These are two key guys that we are bringing into the fold for next season,” Wichita coach Kevin McClelland said. “Danick is a fantastic offensive player who is dangerous with the puck on his stick. Ray is a solid addition to our defensive corps who has spent time in both the NHL and AHL.”
