WICHITA, Kan. – The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers and American Hockey League's Bakersfield Condors, announced that defenseman Billy Constantinou has re-signed for the 2022-23 season.

Constantinou returns to Wichita after being acquired last season at the trade deadline from the Atlanta Gladiators. A native of Scarborough, Ontario, the 21-year-old finished with eight assists in nine contests in Wichita. 

The second-year defenseman began last year with the Iowa Heartlanders. Constantinou was dealt to the Gladiators in the beginning of February. He finished with 33 points (7g-26a) in 63 overall games as a rookie. Constantinou also made his AHL debut on Jan. 15 with the Chicago Wolves. 

Prior to signing in Iowa, he played four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with Niagara, Kingston and Sault Ste. Marie. His best year came in 2019-20 when he collected 53 points (9g-44a) in 60 games between Kingston and Sault Ste. Marie.
