The Twin City Cyclones (Originally the Pee Dee Cyclones) are a minor league ice hockey team based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, United States. They began play in the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) in the 2005-06 season. In the 2005-06 season, they finished 6th out of 7 teams in the regular season standings earning them a spot in the playoffs, but lost in the first round to the Knoxville Ice Bears. In 2006-07 season, their final in Florence, the Cyclone finished in 7th place failing to make the playoffs.

There original name Pee Dee Cyclones was derived from the region of South Carolina around Florence that is usually named after the Pee Dee River. Due to being unable to reach a new lease agreement with the Florence Civic Center, for the 2007-08 season, the Cyclones relocated to Winston-Salem and renamed the team to Twin City Cyclones. They now play in the Lawrence Joel Coliseum Annex located in the Winston-Salem Sports and Entertainment Complex, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, United States.

The team announced on March 24, 2009 that they would cease operations effective March 31, 2009.
