The Cincinnati Cyclones have a new head coach. The team says Niagara Falls, Ontario native Matt Macdonald will be the 8th head coach in club history.

He takes over for Ben Simon who left earlier this month to become Assistant Coach with the Toronto Marlies.

Macdonald spent parts of three seasons with the Cyclones before joining the coaching staff in 2012. He was also part of the team that won Cincinnati's first-ever Kelly Cup title in 2008.

The Cincinnati Cyclones are preparing for game 1 in the Kelly Cup-- the championship series of the ECHL-- tonight against the Alaska Aces.  

To get to the Kelly Cup finals Cincinnati had to beat the Greenville, South Carolina Road Warriors. Game six, the final playoff game was a close one.

Despite being one of the winningest professional sports franchises in the Greater Cincinnati area lately, The Cincinnati Cyclones do some of their hardest work off the ice.

The Cyclones, our ECHL representatives and affiliate with both the Nashville Predators and the Florida Panthers, pride themselves on providing a fun, affordable and family-friendly atmosphere for all of their home games.

Sean Lynn, director of marketing and PR for the Cyclones gave me a preview of some of the upcoming events and attractions that the 2013 season will bring, including Star Wars Night, Super Hero Night (featuring Capn' America team jerseys and an appearance by Iron Man), Kids Eat Free Nights and much more.
