Chris Paul Joins Cyclones for Opening Night

October 22, 2007 - Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) - Twin City Cyclones News Release

The Twin City Cyclones Professional Ice Hockey Team, members of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL), are excited to announce that New Orleans Hornets point guard and former Wake Forest All-American Chris Paul will drop the ceremonial first puck to open the 2007-2008 season on October 25 against the Jacksonville Barracudas.

"We are excited that Chris Paul has decided to join us in celebrating Opening Night for our inaugural season in Winston-Salem by dropping the first puck," commented Mark Richards, Cyclones' Head Coach and General Manager. "He is a well respected member of the local community and we believe our fans will enjoy seeing him on the ice."

Paul will be in town as the Hornets take on the Charlotte Bobcats in a NBA preseason on October 26 at the LJVM Coliseum, the same court where Paul starred for the Demon Deacons. As part of Paul's continual efforts to give back to his hometown community, a portion of the ticket sales from the game will benefit the CP3 Foundation.

The Cyclones will open up the 2007-2008 SPHL season at the LJVM Coliseum Annex in Winston-Salem, NC on October 25, 2007. Game time is set for 7:30 PM. For ticket information, contact the Coliseum Box Office or call the Cyclones at 336-721-1700.
