The best Milwaukee Admirals performer for the month of December. Talk about trying to find hay from the needle stack. This has been a rough month across the board. Yet, I feel as if one player really stood out from all the madness.
My choice for December’s Admiral of the Month is Marek Mazanec.
Mazanec played in eight of the Admirals twelve games in December and had 2 wins, 3.13 goals against average, 0.885 save percentage, and a shutout. That stat line might not look good for him on paper but his play in December has been very strong. He’s been weathering the storm that is played out in front of him and looked calm and composed throughout this poor stretch of play for the entire team.
Other players that have impressed me during this month: Joe Pendenza, 5 points (2 goals, 3 assists) in 8 games… Pontus Åberg, 7 points (5 goals, 2 assists) in 11 games… Taylor Aronson, 5 points (2 goals, 3 assists) in 12 games with a plus/minus rating of +2.
