CINCINNATI, Ohio – The Cincinnati Cyclones, ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Florida Panthers and Nashville Predators, announced today that they have agreed to terms with defenseman Chris Reed for the 2013-14 season.
Reed, a 25-year-old Solon, Ohio native, will return for his third season as a professional this fall. A year ago, he notched a career-high 18 points (1g-17a) in 59 games with the Cyclones.
