CINCINNATI, Ohio - Former Cyclones goaltender Scott Darling became the 16th alum in club history to make his NHL debut when he started in net for the Chicago Blackhawks last night.
Darling impressed in his first NHL game, making 32 saves on 33 shots against the Ottawa Senators to help the Blackhawks earn a 2-1 win. He was also named the first star of the game.
