The Milwaukee Admirals made a roster move on New Year’s Day. Garrett Noonan has been assigned to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. The move comes after defenseman Jaynen Rissling was placed on injured reserved following last night’s 5-2 road win for the Cyclones against the Kalamazoo Wings.
Noonan has played in 24 games this season and has scored 8 points (4 goals, 4 assists) with a plus/minus rating of +1 and 13 penalty minutes. At the time of this move he ranks fourth among Admirals defensemen in scoring but has been on the outside looking in recently with Jonathan Diaby being chosen in his place.
The Cincinnati Cyclones currently have a record of 13-11-0-4 (30 points) which sees them third in the North Division and ninth in the Eastern Conference. They place in Kalamazoo again on Friday before returning home to Cincinnati Saturday night for a game against the Wheeling Nailers.
Thoughts on today’s roster move? Was Noonan the correct candidate to be sent to the ECHL?
