The Cincinnati Cyclones announced today that the team has re-signed defenseman Wyatt Ege for the 2022-23 ECHL season.

Ege, 27, is now the sixth returning defenseman from last year's Cyclones team. The Elk River, Minnesota native played in 63 regular season games for the 'Clones in what his first ECHL season, along with competing in all seven playoff games for Cincinnati.

"It was such a good time last year," said Ege. "We had a really good core group of guys and I talked with Coach Payner (Jason Payne) and Coach Bez (Alex Bezerra) this summer and it sounded like the right place for me to come back. We're hungry for more."

"Wyatt was an all-star for a reason," said Payne. "He's very smart with the puck and has that offensive upside to his game as well. He earned his all-star bid and he earned a couple of AHL call-ups last season. That's a testament to his body of work and I have no doubts that Wyatt will be even better for our team this year."
