Cyclones Sign Jimmy Lodge
The Cincinnati Cyclones have signed forward Jimmy Lodge to a Standard Player Contract ahead of the 2021-22 ECHL season.
“Cincinnati is a great city with great fans and a history of hockey,” said Lodge. “The team has always been tough to play against, so I’m happy to be on the other side of that now. They’ve been a good team for a long time and I’m excited to be a part of the winning culture in that locker room this season.”
“Jimmy is an exciting player with tremendous upside,” said Cyclones Head Coach Jason Payne. “He was drafted in the third round a few years back (2013) by the Winnipeg Jets and he’s a skilled forward that can continue to develop at our level. Lodge has a great scoring touch and a knack for being around the net to contribute. We look forward to seeing him on the ice with the Cyclones this season.”
