THIS WEEKEND'S MATCHUP:
The Cyclones will meet the Toledo Walleye for the first time in 2010-11 and hope for better success than they had a year ago. Last season, Cincinnati went just 3-7-1 in 11 meetings with their I-75 rivals, including a 2-3-0 mark at the Huntington Center.
SCOUTING THE WALLEYE:
Toledo comes into the weekend in search of its first home win of the season after back-to-back lopsided losses. Despite winning their season opener 4-0 at Wheeling, the Walleye were beat on their home ice by 6-0 and 7-2 scores. Toledo’s two leading scorers from a year ago are now elsewhere - Maxime Tanguay (who led the Walleye with 69 points last season) is now with the Alaska Aces and J.C. Sawyer (59 points) is no longer with them either. There absences have been felt on the scoresheet...the Walleye are tied for a league worst 6 goals scored.
Cyclones forward Dylan Hunter has registered a point in each of the Cyclones four games this season. He also leads the team with two multi-point games. Hunter’s 7 points are 3rd most in the ECHL, while his +5 rating is tied for 4th best in the league.
FRESH NEW FACES:
This week the Cyclones had four new players assigned by their AHL affiliates. Defenseman Carl Hudson was sent from Rocherster while forward Mike Bartlett, defenseman Scott Lehman, and goaltender Chet Pickard were all sent from Milwaukee.
