YEAMANS RE-SIGNS, READY TO EXPAND ROLE WITH CYCLONES
The Cincinnati Cyclones announced today that the team has signed forward Brandon Yeamans to a Standard Player Contract for the 2022-23 ECHL season.
Yeamans, 24, joined the Cyclones mid-season during the 2021-22 campaign after starting the year at York University (USports). The Maple, Ontario native collected six points while bashing opponents to the tune of 66 penalty minutes in his 30 games with the 'Clones. Before college, Yeamans was an all-star with North York in the OJHL.
"I don't want to have a ceiling to my game," said Yeamans. "I want to keep evolving and take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way. I feel that I can play any type of role that's needed. I knew last year when I came in that I needed to play a certain style to keep myself in the lineup, but this year I want to take that step forward and be a more impact player without having to fight as much and be able to put up more points."
"We know Brandon is capable of more than just being a fighter in this league," said Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Jason Payne. "He brings speed and tenacity. He's still very young, but we've seen him flourish in juniors when it comes to his offense and I think he can bring that out of himself here at the pro level."
