Goalie Alex Sakellaropoulos Signs for Second Stint with Thunder

GLENS FALLS, NY – The Adirondack Thunder, proud ECHL affiliate of the New Jersey Devils, announced today that they have signed goaltender Alex Sakellaropoulos for the 2020-21 season.  

Sakellaropoulos (pronounced suh-kill-uh-rop-uh-liss), 26, previously played 33 for the Thunder during the 2018-19 season, going 19-6-5 while carrying a .915 save percentage and a 2.51 goals-against average. The netminder also earned three call-ups to the AHL with Binghamton, Utica and Springfield. Last season, the Tinley Park, Illinois native made stops in Rapid City, Norfolk, and Orlando, appearing in a total of 38 games. 

"The moment I became a free agent my first thought was the Adirondack Thunder," Sakellaropoulos said. "I’m really happy to be back in Glens Falls. With the recent signings and with Alex Loh and Pete Dineen back behind the bench, it all feels so familiar. I’m really excited!"

Sakellaropoulos played four seasons at Union College in Schenectady from 2013 until 2017 and was a member of the 2014 National Championship team. The 6-foot-3, 201-pounder backstopped 82 games for the Flying Dutchmen (40-22-13, 2.54 GAA, .914 sv.%).
