CINCINNATI, OH – The Cincinnati Cyclones, proud affiliate of the New York Rangers, have acquired two forwards this week. Cincinnati also receives Zack Andrusiak on return from loan with the AHL’s Calgary Wranglers.  

The Cyclones completed a trade with the Indy Fuel for Brandon Schultz in exchange for future considerations. Cincinnati has also signed David Thomson from the Huntsville Havoc in the SPHL.

Schultz is a 27-year-old forward who has skated in 12 games with the Fuel this season. The Florida native has notched seven points so far this year and is coming off a 24-point year while playing with the Gladiators, Admirals and Adirondack Thunder. A lefty-shooter, Brandon spent the first half of his college career at Northeastern and the second half at Norther Michigan.

Thomson joins the Cincy forward group coming off 21 points (9g, 12a) so far this season with the Huntsville Havoc in the SPHL. In the previous two years, the Ontario 26-year-old has spent time playing in Sweden and with the Wichita Thunder. David was a member of the University of Toronto program for three seasons.

Zack Andrusiak is back with the ‘Clones after playing one game with the Wranglers last weekend. The winger leads Cincinnati in scoring this year with 19 goals and 45 points throughout 39 games. A native of Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Andrusiak has been a consistent presence on the ‘Clones top line and first man-advantage unit this season.

At 5’11, 187 lbs., Zack currently leads the ECHL with an active 12-game point streak that dates all the way back to December of 2023.
