Cincinnati Nabs Impact Player for Second Straight Week

 

Cincinnati, OH- Cincinnati Cyclones Head Coach Matt Macdonald has announced that forward Jordan Sims has signed a Standard Player Contract (SPC) for the 2016-2017 season. Sims has spent parts of the past two seasons with the Evansville IceMen.

“We are pleased to announce the signing of Jordan Sims. We were fortunate to see him play a lot the last two years and are excited for him to be a part of our team next season,” said Macdonald. “He is a player that has the ability to contribute offensively as well as shut down teams defensively, and he also has great skating abilities to go along with a great work ethic and high character. "

Sims appeared in 64 games with the IceMen last season where he was second on the team in scoring with 17 goals and 29 assists for 46 total points, and he led the team with a plus-18 on-ice rating. He also saw two games with the San Jose Barracuda of the American Hockey League (AHL) where he dished out one assist.

A native of Fort Wayne, IN, Sims split the 2014-15 season between three teams, seeing action in 19 games with the IceMen, and five with the Idaho Steelheads. In 24 ECHL games that year, Sims totaled two goals and four assists. He began his pro career that season with the Peoria Rivermen of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL), appearing in 33 games and totaling 21 points (9g, 12a).

Prior to turning pro in 2014, the 5’11”, 185-pound forward spent four years at the University of Connecticut. In 146 games with the Huskies, Sims potted 36 goals and recorded 65 assists for 101 points.
