The Milwaukee Admirals have announced that Mike Liambas will return for the 2014-15 season after signing a one-year AHL contract this afternoon.
During the 2013-14 season, Liambas set an Admirals AHL record for penalty minutes in a season with 267. That topped the previous record held by Jordin Tootoo in 2004-05 when he spent 266 minutes in the penalty box. Liambas was second in the AHL last season in penalty minutes to only Zack Stortini‘s 299.
Liambas has now played in 87 games as a member of the Admirals. He joined the team in February of the 2012-13 season and has a career total of 9 points (4 goals, 5 assists) to go with 341 penalty minutes.
He has made big strides in his all-around game since arriving in Milwaukee. Pekka Rinne called him a warrior. And he has fantastic leadership skills on and off the ice. I think this is a great first re-signing for the Admirals.
Happy to see Mike Liambas returning as an Admiral for next season? Who would you like to see brought back next?
