Cyclones Shuffle Roster Once Again
CINCINNATI, Ohio – The Cincinnati Cyclones, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Florida Panthers and Nashville Predators, announced today that forwards Joe Devin and Garrett Wilson have been reassigned to the club by the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League. In a separate transaction, the Milwaukee Admirals have recalled forward Joel Champagne. Also, the Cyclones have released forwards Martin Spanhel and Rob Schriner.
Devin, a Scituate, Massachusetts native, returns to the Cyclones after another stint with the Rampage. This year at the AHL level, he has logged 17 games with a pair of points (1 goal, 1 assist). With the Cyclones in 2011-12, Devin is tied for the team-lead in game-winning goals (2) and has a total of four points.
Wilson has been among the Cyclones leading scorers all season long and currently ranks fourth on the team with 14 points (8 goals, 6 assists). Prior getting called up to San Antonio, the rookie forward had posted points in three straight games.
