“We have been working to add a winger that provides a different playing profile than the players that are currently on our roster,” Cincinnati General Manager Gerard Nijkamp said in a release.
“Isaac is a player that attacks the opponent with pace and will create goal-scoring opportunities by getting in behind the defense. We’re excited for Isaac to join our club and look forward to welcoming him to Cincinnati.”
