The Cincinnati Cyclones announced today that the team has re-signed forward Lincoln Griffin for the 2022-23 ECHL season.

Griffin, 25, was claimed off waivers by Head Coach Jason Payne last December. After a slow start, the Walpole, Massachusetts native helped carry the team through January with a nine goal, 14-point month.  

"When Payner brought me in and gave me a chance, I'd like to say I played well," said Griffin. "I couldn't have done that without my teammates, especially the leaders. I was kinda nervous and anxious coming in because I had been up and down and kinda all over the place but I really settled in here and found a home in Cincinnati."

"Lincoln is a great example of a player who takes opportunity and runs with it," said Payne. "He played up and down our lineup and contributed in all situations. He's a soldier. He does what's asked of him and finds success in all areas. Doesn't matter if it's five-on-five, power play, penalty kill; we know we can rely on Lincoln to be effective and produce."
