After the first two weekends of the season, Milwaukee is one of just three AHL teams remaining without a loss. The Admirals are also the only unbeaten club left in the Western Conference, and the only one of the three unbeaten teams (Syracuse and Worchester are the other two squads) that has won more than two games.
Today the AHL Weekly Release leads with props for Midwest Division Leaders:
The Milwaukee Admirals are the only team in the Western Conference without a defeat to date, opening the year with three victories. The Admirals, who have registered at least 40 wins and 90 points in each of their last eight seasons, have a new head coach in Kirk Muller and the fourth-youngest roster in the league (as of opening night), including rookie defenseman and 2009 first-round draft choice (11th overall) Ryan Ellis. With wins in Peoria and Chicago to start the season, Milwaukee has extended its own AHL record by earning standings points in 18 consecutive regular-season road games (12-0-4-2).
