There are plenty of transactions to round-up. The Milwaukee Admirals added three players to ATO contracts and reassigned Paul Crowder to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL.

Crowder has played in 4 games with the Admirals this season. He hasn’t scored a point, took one penalty for holding, and has a plus/minus rating of -2. With the Cyclones he has played in 59 games, scored 43 points (14 goals, 29 assists), has 42 penalty minutes to his name, and a plus/minus of +5.

Who are the new names to take his place on the roster? Jonathan DiabyKirill Gotovets, and Joe Pendenza.

Diaby was the Predators 3rd Round (64th Overall) selection in 2013 NHL Draft. He is just finishing up his time with the Victoriaville Tigres in the QMJHL. In juniors the 19-year old defenseman played in 175 games, scored 63 points (14 goals, 49 assists), had 280 penalty minutes, and an overall plus/minus of +30.

Gotovets is a 22-year old from Belarus, drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 7th Round (183rd Overall) in the 2009 NHL Draft, and a product of Cornell University of the ECAC. In college the defenseman played 112 games, scored 19 points (3 goals, 16 assists), recorded 76 penalty minutes, and his plus/minus was +27.

Pendenza just finished his time with UMass-Lowell of H-East. The 23-year old Massachusetts native is an undrafted forward who played 152 games in college, scored 110 points (49 goals, 61 assists), had 118 penalty minutes, and a plus/minus of +36.

It is also worth mentioning that the recently added ATO signing, Tommy Veilleux, will not play with the Milwaukee Admirals this season due to lingering injuries following a season where he played alongside Diaby with Victoriaville.

What are your thoughts on all of these moves? Which new ATO signing excites you the most?

  1. Any word on if Diaby will be skating against Iowa tomorrow evening? I will be there regardless but it would be a special treat to add him to the lineup against Iowa considering the past between the two teams.
