CYCLONES INK FORMER NHL DRAFT PICK JEREMIAH ADDISON
The Cincinnati Cyclones announced today that the team has signed forward Jeremiah Addison to a Standard Player Contract for the 2022-23 ECHL season.
Addison, 25, spent the 2021-22 season at Ryerson University (USports), where the Brampton, Ontario native notched 11 points over 13 games. Addison is a former draft pick out of the Montreal Canadiens organization and owns 10 games of American Hockey League experience.
"Cincinnati seemed like a great team and a great spot to sign," said Addison. "It's not too far from home and its a place I can move forward to and get back on track with my playing career at the pro level."
"Jeremiah's path shows that he's willing to put the work in to being successful," said Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Jason Payne. "He's went from junior to pro, then to college. He's bounced around and battled adversity along his path, and we've seen Jeremiah overcome obstacles along the way. On top of that, he's been a leader and a champion in this game, so I think we're adding a really valuable, young piece to our lineup."
