Cincinnati Cyclones offer Carson Palmer a professional tryout

The Cincinnati Cyclones Hockey team has given former Bengals' Quarterback Carson Palmer a chance to tryout for their team on Thursday.

 That tryout will be held on September 27 at 7:00p.m. at the U.S. Bank Arena. The public is invited to attend the tryouts along with the Cyclones preseason Open House.

 Fans will get a chance to tour the locker room and take shots on the Cyclones broadcaster and one game goalie Nick Brunker. Fane will also get chance to pick out their seats for the upcoming season.

 Palmer recently retired from the NFL and the Cyclones say they hope he continues his professional sports career by lacing up ice skates.

 If he were to make the team, Palmer could earn the league minimum of $370 per week while staying with one of his teammates in a two-bedroom apartment. He would also be traveling to and from each game on a sleeper bus where each player gets their own bunk.

 The Cyclones say the Palmer would have to negotiate with last year's leading scorer Mathieu Aubin to wear the #9.

"To be able to have an athlete such as Carson Palmer would be a major addition to this year's club" said Cyclones Head Coach Jarrod Skalde. "Palmer's leadership and command of a game in the offensive zone should help our squad this season. His skating ability, stick handling skills, and slapshot have yet to be seen but growing up in the hockey hotbed of Fresno, California…one can only think he's a natural."

The Cyclones Home Opener is scheduled for Saturday, November 5 against the Chicago Express.
