We’re a little late on this but it was announced this week that Dean Stork will be returning as the Cyclone’s Assistant Coach for the 2009-2010 season. I’m glad to see this. In the 3 years that Coach Stork has been with the squad, the defense, which he has been responsible for, has been top notch.
In other news, the rumors regarding Matt Syroczinski’s potential return to the Fort Wayne Komets are not rumors. Chico will not be rejoining the Cyclones for 2009-2010, he will instead lace them up for the Komets. Matt will be missed, especially if healthy. Heck, even when playing injured as he was for most of 2008-2009, his offensive prowess never let up. Good Luck with the Komets and sorry again for being on your case so much last season.
Not only will Syroczynski be rejoining Fort Wayne, but so will former short term ‘Clone Mitch Woods. Mitch played a handfull of games at the beginning of last season for the Cyclones. I really wanted to like the guy, but he failed to impress me at the ECHL level given all the hype he generated coming from the IHL.
