He started the season in Wichita, where the 28 year old collected a goal with seven helpers and 12 penalty minutes for the Thunder. Doornbosch skated in 44 games in his rookie season (2016-17) with Wichita, posting 10 goals, 20 assists and 32 penalty minutes.

Prior to turning professional, Doornbosch spent five seasons at St. Mary’s University where he collected 84 points (17G, 67A) over 133 career games for the Huskies. Never drafted, the 6’2”, 190 pound defenseman appeared in one game for the New York Islanders after the completion of his OHL career. He appeared in 264 OHL contests between Kitchener and Peterborough, collecting 41 goals and 106 assists.
