The Admirals are going to see if lightning can strike twice.
Chet Pickard has been reassigned to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL, after starting this season 0-3-1, and not having won in his last 13 decisions dating back to last season.
This isn’t uncharted territory, as Mark Dekanich had a similar demotion last season. He played two games for the Cyclones at the start of December, and he gave up just one goal over those two games.
Dekanich then won his next five games for the Admirals when he arrived back in Cream City, and was noticably more comfortable in net.
So here’s hoping Chet has a productive stint in Ohio. The Cyclones play Friday, Saturday, Tuesday, and then Wednesday. We’ll keep you posted on his performance this weekend.
Meanwhile, Jeremy Smith has been recalled to Milwaukee, likely to be in charge of opening the bench door.
