Cyclones Bolster Blue Line, Sign Dajon Mingo

September 22, 2021 - ECHL (ECHL) - Cincinnati Cyclones News Release

Cincinnati, OH - The Cincinnati Cyclones have signed defenseman Dajon Mingo to a

Standard Player Contract ahead of the 2021-22 ECHL season. Mingo was one of several signings the Cyclones made prior to the 2020-21 campaign, of which the team ultimately elected for voluntary suspension due to the pandemic.

"After a year of not playing, I'm itching to get back out there in front of the fans," said Mingo. "I spent the past year on the ice pretty much every day as a youth hockey director down in Jacksonville. Now I'm excited to turn the page in my career and come bring the Kelly Cup home to Cincinnati!"

"Dajon is an exciting player who will quickly grab the attention of our fans," said Cyclones Head Coach Jason Payne. "He will be a big part of our transition on the fly from defense to offense. He brings a ton of energy and a presence with him that makes Dajon an immediate valuable piece to our lineup."
