The Undefeated Human Being Has Been Summoned

Zach Budish doesn’t know the meaning of the word defeat. Well, he’s smart so he does but let’s just assume he doesn’t to better understand his mysterious undefeated run in the AHL this season. (Photo Credit: Rockford IceHogs // flickr)

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?

  1. Budish needs to play in every game the rest of the season and the playoffs!

    Can you hear me Dean Evason? Budish is the Larry Bird of Milwaukee.

  2. It’s not a mystery, his +/- is always mysteriously high, whenever he is on a line with a goal scorer that guys goals go mysteriously high, and that means he is strong on the puck, plays great defense, and is smart, it’s not a mystery teams that give him ice time win.

    Before his senior year in HS knee injury he was slated to go as high as round 1 pick 5. His teams win, and many of his peers, who he played with or at the same level with, guys like Erik Haula, Nick Bjugstsd, Jordan Schroeder, Anders Lee, and so on are impact players in the NHL. It’s not a mystery, he would make a legit NHL defensive center 3rd line on most teams.
