The Scouting Report
On January 19, in front of a crowd of more than 8,000 fans at INTRUST Bank Arena, Wichita Thunder forward Jon Booras lifted his team to victory over the Missouri Mavericks with the kind of clutch goal the CHL has come to expect from him. After digging themselves a 1–0 hole in the first period, the Thunder righted the ship late in the session before forward Thomas Klempa closed out the session with a goal of his own. But the game hung perilously in the balance as the second period became a defensive standoff—until Booras banged in a rebound goal and sealed Wichita’s fate like a Zamboni driving over a ziplock bag. <p>
The goal not only solidifies Booras’s reputation as one of the CHL’s top offensive performers—he is ninth in the league in combined goals and assists—it also secured the Thunder’s fifth-straight win. They kept that streak alive with a 3–2 win at Tulsa two days later, showing signs that the Thunder could be mounting a late-season run to replicate the success of last year, when they fell one game short of lifting the President’s Cup for the third time in franchise history.<p>
As one of the six charter teams of the Central Hockey League, the Thunder have rattled Wichita windows with devastating slap shots and board-crashing hits since 1992. Throughout those two decades, the team has garnered two Presidents’ Cup trophies, filled arenas with hordes of dedicated fans, and retired five numbers, devastating opponents and calculator manufacturers all the while.
