CINCINNATI (WKRC) --
The Cincinnati Cyclones, proud affiliate of the NHL's Florida Panthers
and Nashville Predators, announced today that forwards Jonathan Hazen,
Trevor Lewis, Mattias Lindstrom, and Anthony Luciani have all been
assigned to the club by the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey
League.

Hazen, a 23-year-old, will be entering his third
professional season all as a part of the Cyclones family. He spent the
bulk of last season in San Antonio, skating in 48 games and contributing
16 points (2 goals, 14 assists). He appeared in 12 contests to start
the season for Cincinnati in 2012-13, collecting 10 points (6 goals, 4
assists) in that stretch. Since breaking into the pro game in 2011-12,
he has earned 58 career tallies 41 of which have come in a Cyclones
jersey.

Lewis, a second-year pro, finished his injury-shortened
rookie campaign with 18 points (5 goals, 13 assists) in 24 regular
season games. He was one of Cincinnati's top postseason offensive
producers, amassing 13 points (3 goals, 10 assists) in 12 Kelly Cup
playoff contests one of which was a game-winning goal during the
Eastern Conference Semifinals. Prior to going pro, the 26-year-old
Little, Pennsylvania native was the team captain of Robert Morris
University, where he finished fifth on the schools All-Time Career
Points list (83), Games Played list (143), and Assists leader board
(53).

Lindstrom, a 2009 third-round pick of the Carolina
Hurricanes, completed his rookie year with 13 points (4 goals, 9
assists) in 49 regular season games and contributed with an assist
during the postseason. He collected his first professional point on
October 27 against Elmira and later enjoyed a career-high three-point
night on March 22 against Florida. Prior to coming overseas in 2012-13,
the Lulea, Sweden native spent his playing career in his home country.

Luciani,
a Maple, Ontario native, appeared in 29 games with Cincinnati a year
ago posting 16 points (4 goals, 12 assists) in that span. Although a
pair of injuries limited his time on the ice, the 23-year-old did also
log five games in the AHL with San Antonio, earning one goal. During his
rookie season of 2011-12, Luciani finished fourth on the Cyclones (and
second among team rookies) with 49 points (26 goals, 23 assists) in 54
games.

The countdown to the 2013 First Face-Off is nearly
complete! The Cyclones open the season at U.S. Bank Arena against the
Wheeling Nailers on Saturday, October 19 at 7:30pm.
