Scott Darling Makes NHL Debut
CINCINNATI, Ohio - Former Cyclones goaltender Scott Darling became the 16th alum in club history to make his NHL debut when he started in net for the Chicago Blackhawks last night.
Darling impressed in his first NHL game, making 32 saves on 33 shots against the Ottawa Senators to help the Blackhawks earn a 2-1 win. He was also named the first star of the game.
The Lemont, Illinois native played six games for the Cyclones during the 2013-14 season, earning a 4-1-1 record and a 2.61 goals-against average. He also spent ample time in the American Hockey League (AHL) last season, accruing a 13-6-0 record and an 2.00 goals-against average.
Darling is the 16th former Cyclones since the 2006-07 season to make his NHL debut, and the first this season. Click here to see the full list of Cyclones alums who have made their NHL debut.
