CINCINNATI, Ohio – The 2010 Kelly Cup Champion Cincinnati Cyclones, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Florida Panthers and Nashville Predators, announced today that goaltender Chet Pickard has been recalled to the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League. To fill Pickard’s place on the roster, the Cyclones have signed Pat Street as an emergency backup goaltender.
The Nashville Predators 2008 first round draft pick was assigned to Cincinnati on October 26 and has since played in eight games for the Cyclones. He picked up his first ECHL win on November 14, turning aside 31 shots against the Toledo Walleye. During his rookie campaign last year, the Winnipeg, Manitoba native appeared in 36 games for the Milwaukee Admirals, earning a 14-16-3 record with a 2.85 GAA and 89.2 save percentage.
The defending Kelly Cup Champions return to U.S. Bank Arena tonight for Scout Night and the opener of a two-game set with the Florida Everblades at 7:30pm. In addition to $1 John Morrell Hot Dogs, the first 3,000 fans through the gates will receive a Cyclones poster featuring Cincinnati’s pair of Kelly Cup rings. It’s also Weiner Dog race night, with an intermission race featuring some local Tri-State canines. Discounted ticket packages and single game tickets for the 2010-2011 season are available now.
