Prior to tonight’s game there is a roster move to announce. The Milwaukee Admirals have recalled Zach Budish from the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. In addition, Frédérick Gaudreau has been activated from reserve for the Cyclones.
Budish has played in only 13 games for the Admirals this season while scoring 7 points (4 goals, 3 assists). Interestingly, or entertainingly enough, the Admirals have yet to lose a single game that Budish has played in this season. Flukey stat, yes, but credit to him because this has been a good season for him. With the Cyclones he has 23 points (8 goals, 15 assists) in 30 games at the ECHL level.
This is the second move for the Admirals before finishing off the All Star break with tonight’s game against the Grand Rapids Griffins. Marek Mazanec was recalled to Nashville earlier in the week and placed Rob Madore back up to Milwaukee. He should be serving on the bench with Magnus Hellberg starting tonight.
Thoughts on the addition of Budish? Should he be getting playing time at the AHL level over other lower-line wingers? Will Madore get an AHL start tomorrow night?
