CINCINNATI, Ohio – The 2010 Kelly Cup Champion Cincinnati Cyclones, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Florida Panthers and Nashville Predators, announced today that they have agreed to terms with forward Dustin Sproat.
Sproat, a Red Deer, Alberta native, returns to Cincinnati for a third season after starting the year playing overseas for the Nottingham Panthers (EIHL). While with Nottingham, he tallied 18 points (6g-12a) in 17 games. In 2009-10, Sproat was the second leading scorer for the Cyclones, averaging nearly a point-per-game – 59 points (24g-35a) in 66 regular-season contests. In last year’s Kelly Cup Playoff run, the fourth-year pro played in all 24 games and led the Cyclones in scoring with 20 points (11g-9a).
In addition to his work on the ice, Sproat is also the founder and Executive Director of Hockey Players for Kids (HP4K) – an all-volunteer organization, harnessing the leadership and enthusiasm of exceptional people playing professional hockey in communities throughout North America and positively impacting the lives of children.
