CINCINNATI, OH – The Cyclones have received Everblades forwards Robert “Bobo” Carpenter and Zach Tsekos to complete the future consideration trade that sent Zack Andrusiak from Cincinnati to Florida at the 2024 trade deadline.

Carpenter is fresh off leading the Everblades to a third-consecutive Kelly Cup. As an assistant captain this year, the 27-year-old racked up 46 points (28g, 18a) during the regular season and paced all Florida skaters with 23 points and 12 goals during the team’s playoff run.

The North Reading, Massachusetts native has four years of AHL experience, seeing time with both the Milwaukee Admirals and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Prior to turning pro, Carpenter was a four-year member and senior captain for Boston University. He was a part of a Hockey East Champion team his junior season.

The right-handed shooting forward comes from a prominent hockey family. His father Bobby played 18 years in the NHL after he was selected 3rd overall in the 1981 draft by the Washington Capitals. He was the first American player to score 50 goals in one season and hoisted the Stanley Cup with the Devils in 1995.

“Bobo’s” sister Alex is a decorated skater now playing for PWHL New York. A former captain at Boston College, Alex is a six-time World Champion and has played on Team USA international teams for over 15 years.

Forward Zach Tsekos heads to the Cyclones after completing his third professional season. The lefty-shooter collected 11 points (5g, 6a) in 27 games played this season with the eventual Kelly Cup champs.

The Montréal, Quebec native has played 60 contests in the ECHL between the Everblades and the Grizzlies, while also skating in six AHL games with the Colorado Eagles.

The 27-year-old was a two-year captain at Clarkson University after transferring and beginning his collegiate career at Sacred Heart. Tsekos amassed 117 points (39g, 78a) through his five college seasons.

Cincinnati has also sent Ben Hawerchuk to South Carolina to complete the futures trade that brought defenseman Cole Fraser to the Cyclones last season.
