CYCLONES BRING BACK CARON FOR FIRST FULL PRO SEASON
The Cincinnati Cyclones announced today that the team has re-signed forward Cody Caron for the 2022-23 ECHL season.
Caron, 26, joins the growing list of returnees from the 'Clones 2021-22 roster, though the Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario native had his rookie season cut short after nine games in January. Caron posted four points with Cincinnati while spending the bulk of his shifts on the Cyclones top line with Team Captain, Justin Vaive.
"I just want to be a well-rounded player," said Caron. "I kind of try to model my game after Vaive. He's one of the best captains I've ever been around. I can play with speed, with grit; I can put up points and kill penalties. I will do whatever this team needs of me to help us win games."
"We view Cody as a player who has tremendous upside," said Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Jason Payne. "We saw a little bit of everything out of him in the brief time he played for us last year. He adds depth for us up front and I'm excited to see him bring more grit, toughness, and skill to our team this season."
