We have our next amateur-tryout contract to announce. This afternoon Admirals have signed forward Braden Pimm.

Pimm just completed his senior season at Northeastern University. In his four-year college career he played 139 games, scored 85 points (42 goals, 43 assists), a plus/minus rating of +7, and 131 penalty minutes.

He enters the Admirals from a senior campaign that saw him record new highs in games played in a season (37) and scoring – 37 points (20 goals, 17 assists). His goal total led Northeastern last season.

He also already has plenty of connections with the Ads. In two seasons with Northeastern he was playing alongside Anthony Bitetto and Vinny Saponari. Pimm also hails from Fort Saint John, British Columbia, Canada. Who else on the Admirals can name that town home? The captain of the Admirals and sheriff of Milwaukee, Scott Ford.

Thoughts on the new blood? How can the newbie fit into the Admirals lineup?

    I’m still kind of new to hockey, especially the AHL. What is the difference between an amateur tryout contract and a professional tryout contract? And typically what does the contract include?

    Sounds like he’s a classic power forward. A bigger kid who isn’t afraid to go to the front of the net and get the “dirty” goals. I think that he could fit in very well in Milwaukee.
