Harms Signed for 2019-20
Cincinnati, OH - TheCincinnati Cyclones have signed forward Brendan Harms to a Standard Player Contract (SPC) for the 2019-20 season. Cincinnati acquired the right to Harms from the Greenville Swamp Rabbits in June, satisfying the Future Considerations trade for forward Jordan Sims from October 24.
"Brendan is a versatile player who will make an immediate impact on our team," remarked Cyclones head coach Matt Thomas. "I coached against him for all four of his collegiate seasons, and he plays a solid 200 foot game. He competes hard and will complement our group with his skill set."
Hailing from Steinbach, MB, Harms skated in 62 games between the Swamp Rabbits and Utah Grizzlies last season, accounting for 16 goals and 20 assists, along with 35 minutes in penalties. Entering his third full season in the ECHL, the 24-year-old spent the entirety of the 2017-18 campaign with Utah, amassing 13 goals and 25 assists in 62 games. He made his pro debut late in the 2016-17 season, accounting for a goal in four games with the Florida Everblades.
"I've talked to a few former teammates who have played in Cincinnati, and they had nothing but great things to say about the organization, city, and coaching staff," said Harms. "I have also heard a lot about coach Thomas who coached against me in college for four years. I'm really excited to get down to Cincinnati and get things started."
Prior to turning pro, Harms enjoyed a successful collegiate career at Bemidji State University, totaling 88 points (33g, 55a) in 141 career games, and he also served as an assistant captain during his senior season 2016-17.
