Sarjeant makes surprise visit here
Former Cyclones goalie Geoff Sarjeant made an unexpected visit to Cincinnati on Friday. Sarjeant, traded by the Cyclones Dec. 3, was picked up on loan by Long Beach for the weekend. Sarjeant is filling in for injured Manny Legace and is expected to be with the Ice Dogs.
I knew I was kind of a secret coming in here, Sarjeant said. It's not like when Donny (Biggs) came in, everyone knew he was coming.
Sarjeant received a nice ovation as he left the ice following the pregame skate. Sarjeant responded by raising his stick and waving to the fans.
After being traded to Detroit he played sparingly for the Vipers before being sent to Flint of the United Hockey League.
It's been a nightmare (season) and hopefully it's hit rock bottom when I went to the United League, said Sarjeant, who wore a Vipers sweatshirt and sweatpants before the game. If I wasn't going to get paid, I wouldn't have gone (to the UHL). I need to stay in the loop if my career is going to continue.
