Under coach Kevin McClelland, goalkeeper has been a strong position for the Thunder. It just hasn’t been particularly stable.

In each of McClelland’s three seasons, the primary starting and backup goalies have been different than the season before. The only holdover was Ian Keserich, who played 22 games in Wichita’s 9-50-5 2009-10 campaign and three games in McClelland’s first season.

The reason for the instability hasn’t had much to do with performance.

McClelland has just found it difficult to pass up annual opportunities to improve the position.
