Bobo’s father, Bobby, was an outstanding forward who played 18 years in the NHL. He was most famously known for being the first American player to score 50 goals in one season. During his career, he won one Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils in 1995. Over his 18-year tenure in the NHL, he transitioned from being a high goal scorer to becoming one of the best shut-down centers in the league.

Zach Tsekos, a left-handed forward, moves to the Cyclones after finishing his third professional season. In the most recent season, he accumulated 11 points (5 goals, 6 assists) in 27 games played with the eventual Kelly Cup champions. The native of Montréal, Quebec has competed in 60 ECHL games between the Everblades and the Grizzlies, in addition to participating in six AHL games with the Colorado Eagles. During his college career, he played for Clarkson University and Sacred Heart, ultimately amassing a total of 117 points over five years.
