Following a career season, forward RG Flath
has re-signed with the Wichita Thunder. The Park City, Utah native had 23 goals in 42 games last season to go along with 39 points.
Flath was one of the stars in the Thunder’s post-season run to the CHL Finals where they fell to Fort Wayne in five games. In the playoffs, the 5-11, 190-pound forward had a team-high nine goals in 16 games.
"I’m really excited to be coming back to Wichita," stated Flath. “It’s a great place to play with amazing fans. We came so close last year and hopefully we can get back to the finals and bring back the cup to a city that deserves it.”
Flath will begin his sixth professional season after spending time in Austin, Corpus Christi, Mississippi, Oklahoma City and Rapid City. Flath started last year overseas with Sheffield of the EIHL before returning state-side. For his career, Flath has played in 285 professional games, accumulating 179 points (88g, 91a).
