Cyclones Send 3 up to AHL-Americans
Cincinnati, OH- Cyclones forward Lukas Craggs, along with defensemen Nick Boka and Matthew Cairns have all been recalled by the Rochester Americans.
Craggs and Boka had previously been called-up to the Amerks earlier in the season, but were later returned to Cincinnati. Each has experience in the American Hockey League prior to joining Rochester. This is the first call-up Cairns has received.
- Cairns, 23, entered the season on an AHL contract with the Americans. The Mississauga, Ontario native is the youngest player to skate for the Cyclones this season.
- Both Cairns and Jesse Schultz are the only players to have skated in every game for the 'Clones so far. Through 27 games, Cairns scored one goal and tallied five assists, including three in Cincinnati's 7-1 win over Wheeling earlier in the week.
- Cairns leads the team in plus/minus with a +14 rating. He has finished a game with a minus rating just twice in his last 16 contests and sits in a tie for sixth among all ECHL defensemen.
The Cyclones return home Wednesday night to host the Greenville Swamp Rabbits.
