August 1, 2015

The reigning Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League and Dudley-Hewitt Cup champion Soo Thunderbirds have confirmed the return of a veteran forward for the 2015-2016 season.

1995 birth-year skater Matt Pinder will be back with the Thunderbirds for his final season of junior after scoring 30 goals in total for the champs in 2014-2015.

“Matthew is first and foremost a quality person who certainly represents what we look for in a Soo Thunderbird,” said T-Birds general manager Jamie Henderson. “Coming off a great season, Matthew will be expected to bring an even higher level of play game in and game out.”

“We’re really excited to welcome Matthew back to the Soo Thunderbird program,” added Henderson.
