The Wichita Thunder announced a trade with the Atlanta Gladiators Wednesday. The team acquired forward Todd Fiddler for future considerations.
This is Fiddler’s fourth team in just over a season in the ECHL. Fiddler appeared in five games for the Gladiators, where he had a goal and assist but was -3.
A native of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, the 5-foot-11, 210-pound forward played most of his rookie season last year with the Quad City Mallards before being sent to the Ontario Reign. The second-year pro finished with 27 points (13g, 14a) in 50 games with Quad City.
In 280 career WHL games posted, Fiddler posted 289 points (127G, 162A) and 14 career post-season points (6G, 8A) in 26 games. He also posted career highs in goals (48), assists (40) and points (88) in 2013-14 for the Prince George Cougars in his final junior season prior to signing with the Colorado Eagles toward the tail-end of the 2013-14 season.
Wichita will play the Colorado Eagles in a pair of back-to-back games this Friday night and Saturday afternoon.
