CINCINNATI, OH – The 2017-18 Cincinnati Cyclones continue to grow as two more names were added to the roster on Wednesday afternoon. A pair of offensively minded rookie forwards joined the fray as Andrew Radjenovic and Dylan Denomme will call Cincinnati home for their rookie campaigns, both whom were letter wearers while in college.
Radjenovic enters his first full professional season after being an offensive catalyst in his collegiate career at Brock University. He averaged over a point-per-game during his senior year, putting up 31 points (12 goals, 19 assists) in 25 contests. He made his professional debut at the tail-end of the 2014-15 season with the Bakersfield Condors and accounted for eight points (five goals, three assists) in 22 ECHL contests. Prior to landing in Condorstown, he tallied 62 points (36 goals, 26 assists) in 82 collegiate games from his Freshman through Junior years at Brock.
“Andrew is coming to Cincinnati highly recommended after a solid career in CIS where he lead his teams in points his last two years,” remarked Cyclones Head Coach Matt Macdonald in a press release. “He also has previous experience in the ECHL where he had success in the 22 games he played in Bakersfield. Andrew is a big kid that brings skill and offensive abilities to our team, and he has the versatility to play both wing and center.”
And here is your “thanks, Pierre” moment of the day: Radjenovic played under Matt’s younger brother, Mike Macdonald, who was the Assistant Coach at Brock.
“I’m happy to be headed to Cincinnati,” said Radjenovic. “I’m excited to get things going and make the most of my opportunity with the Cyclones.
Denomme comes to the Queen City after three-year collegiate career at the University of Windsor, where he stacked up 84 points (29 goals, 55 assists) in 80 games.
“We are happy to announce the signing of Dylan Denomme, said Macdonald. “He is coming to Cincinnati after an impressive college career where he was one of the top point producers at his school for all 3 years. He brings high end character to go along with his offensive abilities and we believe his game will translate well to the ECHL.”
Before heading off to Windsor, Denomme played 192 games in the junior ranks with the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League’s LaSalle Vipers and put up 234 (113 goals, 121 assists) points throughout the course of four seasons. He also saw some time in the British Columbia Hockey League with the Nanaimo Clippers and accounted for two assists in six games.
“This is a dream come true,” said Denomme. “I’ve worked my whole hockey career to get this chance, and I couldn’t be happier and more excited to start my pro career in a city like Cincinnati.”
