The Airdrie Thunder are a Junior "B" Ice Hockey team based in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada. They are members of the North Division of the Heritage Junior B Hockey League (HJHL). They play their home games at Ron Ebbesen Arena.

History Edit

Division titles won: 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009
League Championships won: 1997, 2000
Alberta Provincial entries: 1997, 2000, 2005
Alberta Provincial titles: none (best finish: Silver in 2000)
Keystone Cup titles: none

Playing out of one of the HJHL's larger markets, the Thunder are perennially one of the top teams in the league. They have developed an intense rivalry with their divisional counterparts, the Okotoks Bisons. The Thunder handed the Bisons their only two losses in the 2005-06 season, while the four victories for Okotoks were the only four games the Thunder lost. The Bisons eliminated the Thunder in the league semi-finals.

The two rivals also met in the 2005 HJHL finals, with Okotoks again coming out the victors in a tough five game series. Despite losing the championship, the Thunder qualified for the Alberta Provincials, held in Calgary but failed to advance to the medal round.

Airdrie's best season to date was 1999-2000, when they captured their second league title in four years before going on to win the silver medal at the Alberta Provincial Junior B Hockey Championship, which was also hosted by the Thunder.
