ROCHESTER ASSIGNS OLISCHEFSKI TO CYCLONES
The Cincinnati Cyclones have been assigned forward Kohen Olischefski from AHL affiliate-Rochester Americans.
Olischefski, 24, began his pro career near the end of the 2021-22 season, skating in three games for Rochester. He was signed to a one-year AHL contract in the offseason. Olischefski joins forward Josh Passolt, defenseman Zach Berzolla, and goaltender Beck Warm as the AHL-contracted players on the Cyclones roster ahead of the 2022-23 ECHL season.
"We're excited to have Kohen's next step in his development take place in Cincinnati," said Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Jason Payne. "He's a strong player who we got to see during Rochester and Buffalo's camps and we'll look to bring the most out of his game at this level so he can take that next step in his career."
