Forward Brandon Tucker has agreed to terms and will join the Thunderbolts when training camp begins in early October.
Brandon Tucker played in 49 games for Evansville last year, scoring 5 goals and adding 14 assists for 19 points. The 6’-2”, 200 lbs. native of Colorado Springs, Colorado played in his first professional season during 2018-2019. Tucker celebrated his 23rd birthday yesterday and has over 300 Fortnite victories.

“I’m really excited to come back to Evansville,” Brandon said. “The city is a great place to be and the Ford Center is first class. I think this will be a big turnaround season for the team and I hope to make a big impact in making that happen.”
“We are excited to welcome Brandon Tucker back this season,” Head Coach Jeff Bes said. “He has the ability to get under opponents’ skin and definitely bring his physical play every night. With a solid first season under his belt, we expect Brandon to continue his development and be counted on both on and off the ice.”
