Before the Milwaukee Admirals hit the road they’ve decided to make a roster move. Patrick Cehlin has been assigned to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. There has yet to be any announcement of a counter move.

Cehlin missed the start of this season due to a blood clot that formed following his hip surgery in the off-season. He started the 2014-15 season with 3 games played in Cincinnati where he scored a goal in his last outing prior to being brought back up to the Admirals. Since, he has played 4 games and recorded no points with 2 penalty minutes.

With the Cyclones next game being played on Wednesday in Cincinnati and the Admirals playing twice in Cleveland Lake Erie on Tuesday and then Thursday – it is possible that Cehlin could be getting a quick run before being brought back to the Admirals before they leave the state of Ohio. My hope? I would very much like to see Zach Budish get recalled in place of Cehlin. He is a bigger bodied player that offers the Admirals lower-lines a different look and, since joining the Cyclones in late October, Budish has scored 17 points (4 goals, 13 assists) in 19 games.

Thoughts on this roster move? What does this move mean for Patrick Cehlin? Who should fill his spot for Tuesday’s game?

  1. I heard that Ian White signed a PTO for Milwaukee. He is a 30 year old former Red Wing and Leaf who plays defense.

  2. adsfan: He was just released by the Bruins (AHL) on PTO contract a week ago. Not seeing that anywhere else but it’d be an interesting move when you think “Admirals Sign Veteran Defenseman” as a headline.
