Development at Work

By Union Thunder Staff, 01/05/23, 11:45AM EST


In half a season the Union Thunder was already able to achieve the organizational milestone of having an EHL call up. Tyler Gobel (04 fwd) was recently called up to the EHL AppleCore, after an outstanding first half of the season where he compiled 13 Goals and 3 Assists while also leading the team in with his 2 way game. 

"Its great to see our focus on development, and using the EHLp as way to advance players to the next level at EHL benefitting players so early in the history of our program. More importantly, it is a testament to Gobes' work ethic, skill, and buy in to the Thunder way" said Coach/Asst. GM Sam Tafel. 

Tyler is a product of Union Thunder Youth Hockey program, whose game has been taken to the next level through our EHLp team. Tyler is not the only beneficiary of the Thunder EHLp model. Even as the youngest team in the league, the growth of all players is evident. This is seen through play in the EHLp, supreme play at the NJHS level, and several ACHA D1 & D2 offers. 

The season is young, The Thunder are young, and the future is very bright. The Thunder continue to look forward to developing their players for future success.
