Ads Summer Notes: Oligny Added; Larson, Ads Awarded

Yesterday the Milwaukee Admirals added another piece to the 2014-2015 roster puzzle by signing Canadian junior defenseman Jimmy Oligny to a one-year American Hockey League contract.

The 20-year-old spent last season as a prominent defenseman with the Rimouski Oceanic, which finished 45-16-0-3 in the East Division of the QMJHL (the same Oceanic squad that produced Sidney Crosby and Vincent Lecavalier among others). Oligny had a stand out campaign, scoring seven goals and 36 points to lead all team defenseman (also finished as a +23 with 119 PIMs). Prior to Rimouski, the undrafted blue liner played four years with the Prince Edward Island Rocket, with his best season coming in 2012-2013 where he racked up 13 goals, 42 points and 142 PIMs.

The 5-11, 209-lbs. defenseman doesn’t back down from anyone, as 165 PIMs in 2011-2012 with the Rocket attests to.

In other news the American Hockey League meetings came to a close today after three days in Springfield, Massachusetts. The Milwaukee Admirals came away as big winners during the event.

Milwaukee V.P. of Communications Charlie Larson was honored with the Ken McKenzie award today for his outstanding promotion of the Admirals.

It’s been a honor and pleasure to work with Larson as a mentor over the past three seasons, and he is extremely deserving of this honor.

Two days ago, the Admirals took home the AHL Achievement Award for Season ticket renewal. Congratulations Charlie and all of the Milwaukee Admirals staff on a job well done!

Finally day one of the NHL draft begins tomorrow night. In case you are wondering, Nashville selects 11th this time around and 46th overall in round two.
