The Milwaukee Admirals announced late this afternoon that forward Joe Pendenza will be returning to the team for the 2014-15 season.
Pendenza joined the Admirals in April on an amateur try-out contract. He played in 5 games, didn’t score a point, had a plus/minus rating of -1, and 2 penalty minutes. He was coming off of a brilliant campaign for U-Mass-Lowell where he led the River Hawks in all scoring categories: 30 points (14 goals, 16 assists).

Pendenza describes his game:
Pendenza becomes the second signing of the Admirals off-season. Mike Liambas re-upped last Thursday. One wonders what moves are coming next. There are still a fair bit of unrestricted and restricted free agents to rundown. I also wonder what this signing means in terms of Braden Pimm. Does it mean the the picked Pendenza over Pimm or could both be back next season? Still plenty of unknowns but, hey, this is why they call it crazy season right?
Happy with the signing of Joe Pendenza by the Admirals? What could his signing mean for others looking to return to the team next season? Which unrestricted free agents should the Admirals target next?
