Second Year Forward Heads To Cincinnati Following Successful Year in Toledo


Cincinnati, OH- Cincinnati Cyclones Head Coach Matt Macdonald has announced that forward Dominic Zombo has signed a Standard Player Contract (SPC) for the 2016-2017 season. Zombo comes to the Queen City after spending his rookie campaign with the Toledo Walleye.

“Dominic is a player that we are excited to bring in to Cincinnati,” remarked Macdonald. “He is a great skater with good hockey IQ, and he plays with energy and enthusiasm. Dominic has a lot of character as well and will work extremely hard for his team and will do what it takes to win, and we believe he will play an important role in our lineup and will help our team next season to be successful.” 

A native of Baldwin, MO, Zombo appeared in 69 games with the Walleye last season, accounting for 10 goals and 16 assists, along with 36 penalty minutes. He helped Toledo to a first place finish in the Eastern Conference, and appeared in five playoff games where he dished out a pair of assists. The Walleye fell to the Reading Royals in the first round, 4 games to 3.

Prior to his time in Toledo, the 5’10”, 185-pounder was a four-year letter winner for the University of Nebraska-Omaha where he served as an assistant captain during his junior season of 2013-2014, and was named team captain the following year during his senior season. He appeared in 137 games over four years and totaled 36 goals and 50 assists for 80 points. Before his collegiate days, Zombo played his junior hockey for the Sioux Falls Stampede of the United States Hockey League (USHL), recording 28 goals and 29 assists in 111 games over parts of three seasons.
