LAST WEEK - Wichita played Kansas City three times this past weekend to open the Independence Cup Series. The Thunder took 5 of a possible 6 points, winning Friday, 7-3, losing in overtime on Saturday by the final of 3-2 and grabbing a 3-2 win yesterday afternoon.

SUSPENCE - Spencer Dorowicz returned to the Thunder lineup last weekend and provided a much needed offensive spark. He had points in all three games, recording 3 points (2g, 1a) on Friday night, an assist on Saturday and scoring the game-winning goal on Sunday. Dorowicz is in his second year as a pro after playing for Cincinnati last season.

POINT STREAK - Ostap Safin has found his groove over the last four games. He has 6 points (3g, 3a) over that span and registered his first multi-point performance of his career on Friday. The Prague, Czech native had goals in three-straight that was snapped on Sunday.

FABULOUS - Fabrizio Ricci helped get Wichita back into the game on Saturday night. He has goals in back-to-back games and three points over his last two outings.

GILLY GILLY - Mitch Gillam has been steady in net for the Thunder this season. He has won his last three starts, grabbing two over the weekend. He stopped 33 of 35 en route to a 3-2 win on Sunday and was named the game's second star.

FIRST TIMER - Billy Exell recorded his first pro goal on Friday night. He took a long outlet pass from Peter Crinella and scored on a shorthanded breakaway. The rookie forward out of Minnesota-Duluth ended up with 3 points in the game (1g, 2a).
