Cyclone Hockey started the year on the right foot with a two-game sweep against Central States Collegiate Hockey League rival Illinois. 

Here are some important numbers from the game:

75-66: The amount of shots from each side, the Cyclones claiming the larger number. It was a dominating weekend for the Cyclones after earning significant 6-1 and 4-2 victories. The team kept consistent offensive-zone time for most of the game, with exceptions being on penalty kills. 

4: Players new and returning to the ice. Chase Rey, Mike Dopko, Preston Blanek and new-man Andrew Carlson highlighted the four. Rey led the pack with two goals in the first game.

5: The amount of points Trevor Lloyd had over the weekend. He had three assists in the first game on Jan. 9 and followed it up with a goal and an assist the following night. He took part in five of the ten goals that the Cyclones scored in the series.

4: Antti Helanto racked up the assists in the first game of the series with four. He was originally credited with three, but after video review, he was given the second assist on the Scott Antonsen goal.
