The Ads signed Mike Liambas to a standard player contract Sunday after an impressive 27-game stint last season.
His physical style of play and fighting ability quickly made him a fan favorite after he was loaned to Milwaukee by Orlando on February 4.
Liambas picked up 74 penalty minutes, scored his first AHL goal back on February 17 and added an assist in the Western Conference Quarterfinals against Texas.
In the NHL playoffs, seven former members of the Admirals organization remain in contention for a Stanley Cup: Boston’s Claude Julien and Rich Peverley, Ottawa’s Cory Conacher, Pittsburgh’s Tomas Vokoun and Mark Eaton, Detroit’s Jordin Tootoo and Chicago’s Sheldon Brookbank.
What do you think of the Liambas signing? Nice to see the team keep his presence on the roster, and it’ll be interesting to see what he can do over a full season.
