Predators renew affiliation with Cincinnati of ECHL
The Nashville Predators announced that they have renewed their affiliation with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL for an eighth season.

The Nashville Predators announced Monday that they have renewed their affiliation with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL for an eighth season.

The Cyclones will serve as the secondary developmental affiliate for the Predators, whose top farm team is the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.

"We look forward to continuing to work with such a class organization that creates a winning environment for our players to develop," Predators assistant general manager Paul Fenton said. "Led by President Ray Harris, the Cyclones have been a model of consistency the past seven seasons and have been critical to the success of the Milwaukee Admirals and the Nashville Predators."

Cincinnati has made the ECHL playoffs each season since becoming a Nashville affiliate for 2007-08. The Cyclones won Kelly Cup titles in 2008 and 2010; they lost in the Kelly Cup Final to the Alaska Aces this season.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
