McFadden Assigned, Irwin Acquired from Allen

CINCINNATI, Ohio – The Cincinnati Cyclones, proud affiliate of the NHL's Florida Panthers and Nashville Predators, announced today that defenseman Josh McFadden has been reassigned to the club. In a separate transaction, the Cyclones acquired forward Geoff Irwin in exchange for forward Greger Hanson. To make room on the roster, the club has released forward Lindsay Sparks.

McFadden, a 23-year-old, was a key part of Cincinnati’s run to the 2014 Kelly Cup Finals, recording 10 assists in 23 playoff games with the Cyclones. He spent time with both the Rampage and Cincinnati during the 2013-14 season, tallying a goal and four assists in 15 games with San Antonio and eight goals and six assists in 43 games with Cincinnati. The Guelph, Ontario native had yet to skate in a game with the Rampage this season.

Irwin, a fourth-year pro, looks to continue his strong ECHL offensive track record. A year ago, the 29-year-old registered 24 points (7g, 17a) in 36 games with the Las Vegas Wranglers, where he was a teammate with Cyclones forward Brian Nugent. He's also seen time with the Idaho Steelheads and Ontario Reign since going pro in 2010. Irwin played collegiately at the University of Minnesota-Mankato, where he totaled 84 points in 143 collegiate games and was team captain during his senior season.

The Cyclones will return for another season of hockey at U.S. Bank Arena this Saturday, October 25 when they play host to the Kalamazoo Wings at 7:30pm. In addition to $1 John Morrell Hot Dogs, Donatos Pizza, and soda, the first 5,000 fans through the gates will receive a Cyclones Magnet! Fans can also get the latest team updates throughout the season on Facebook and Twitter (@CincyCyclones).
