Unbeaten Admirals Making League-Wide Waves

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).

Roundtable…Feel free to add your own superlatives describing Milwaukee’s fast start in the comments section below.

  1. Nice to get some attention and mentions but we are only 3 games in, we may have the better coach right now getting these guys prepared and being the peskyads but let’s just take one game at a time. The heat coming up will be a nice test that orhganization always seems to be pretty decent, and make sure we finish all 60mins rockford lost to them last week choking away their lead in the third. Overall happy with what I’ve seen can’t wait till next week for 3 straight days of hockey!!! Go ads!!!!!!

  2. While winning the forst 3 games of the year is nice, it would also be nice to win the last 3 games of the Calder Cup playoffs next spring.

  3. Probably better to be safe and have an extra D-man just in case. If something happens on Friday, it might not have been that easy to get someone to Abbotsford in time for the second game.

    And agreed — the quick start is nice….but a strong finish would be better. And the spring is a long way away…
