The Evansville Thunderbolts are back from one-year coronavirus-induced hiatus, now back practicing at the Ford Center.

While there are plenty of new faces in new places from 18 months ago, there are plenty of familiar ones, as well. That includes head coach Jeff Bes, the franchise's most successful bench boss, Austin Plevy, the franchise's most celebrated player, winning MVP, Rookie of the Year and SPHL scoring champ. There's also starting goaltender Brian Billett, to name just a few.

The Thunderbolts open the season this weekend on the road for two games at Quad City. Their home opener is next Friday against the Storm. as well.

Monday morning, we will see partly sunny skies with temperatures still in the mid 20°s. By the afternoon, we will be warming up into the mid 40°s with cloud coverage increasing. This is due to a cold front expected to traverse the tri-state overnight Monday.
