Cincinnati, OH (NNCNOW.com) --- Former University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) forward Dan DeLisle has signed a professional contract with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL), the team announced on Tuesday.
DeLisle played in 103 games across four seasons with the Bulldogs, totaling nine goals and seven assists while playing much of his career on UMD's checking line.
"Dan is a large forward who is looking to get his pro career started," Cyclones head coach Ben Simon said. "I've seen him in various rookie camps over the last couple of years and I've liked what I seen. He will be looked upon to be a physical presence and someone who can help create space for his line mates."
DeLisle was a third round selection of the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, but he was not signed by the club after coming out of college. The Cyclones are the ECHL affiliate of the Nashville Predators and Florida Panthers.
