The Adirondack Thunder is a professional ice hockey team in the ECHL which will begin play for the 2015–16 season. Based in Glens Falls, New York and affiliated with the NHL's Calgary Flames, the Thunder will play their home games at the Glens Falls Civic Center.

The Thunder will replace the AHL's Adirondack Flames, which will be relocated to Stockton, California to become the Stockton Heat.


On January 29, 2015, the Calgary Flames announced that they would be moving their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Flames, to Stockton as one of five charter member's of the AHL's new Pacific Division.[1] The next day, the Flames announced that the ECHL's Stockton Thunder (who they had purchased the day before) would move to Glens Falls in what was essentially a "market swap".

The Thunder name, logo and colors were unveiled on February 11, 2015.[2]
