Buffalo Thunder Hockey Club

The Buffalo Thunder are a junior hockey organization which plays within the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL), Premier Division - Northeast Conference.  We are a college preparatory program. 

Each season, our team is comprised of elite 16-20 year old players striving to compete at college and professional ranks. Exposure for our entire team is a high priority each season.  

Our mission: to provide a positive, challenging, and development focused environment for players on the ice and to develop a sense of pride and responsibility through volunteering in the community off of the ice. We aim to provide our players with the necessary tools required for success as they move forward. Our team culture is the backbone of our program and is key in the development process. 

Our team values: pride, responsibility, and respect. We work at giving back to the community by volunteering for area charities and organizations. 

The Buffalo Thunder Hockey Club and our players are about more than just hockey; we look forward to be a part of this community for many years to come! We are not only molding good hockey players, we are molding good men.
