There will be a new captain in Milwaukee this year.
(Apparently….they really liked the picture from his time in Providence for their press release over anything from the last four seasons in Milwaukee.)
It’s sad to see him go. Such is life as a fan in the AHL. I don’t want to write a eulogy, but I will say that if Fordo spends the season in Peoria, it’s going to be really weird seeing him in a Rivermen jersey 12 times next season.
But congrats to him on the contract — it’s an NHL deal, as opposed to the AHL deals he had with Milwaukee.
Thanks for four good years, Fordo. You’ll be missed.
