Tonight the Milwaukee Admirals have recalled defenseman Garrett Noonan from the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. This move shouldn’t come as much of a shock for those that saw Jimmy Oligny‘s injury in yesterday’s 4-0 win in Grand Rapids.

Noonan has played in 27 games this season for the Admirals and produced 8 points (4 goals, 4 assists), with a plus/minus rating of +2, and 13 penalty minutes. Down in the ECHL he has logged only 6 games and has only managed to record an assist – which came in last night’s Pink the Rink game. He has a -2 rating in the ECHL, 6 penalty minutes, and has averaged 2 shots on goal per game.

As for Oligny, he lost an edge in the second period of last night’s shutout victory and collided skates first into the end-boards. As his body caught up with him he went upright and bent his right knee at an awkward angle. I’m no doctor, but I would speculate that at best he sprained his MCL and at the absolute worst it could be a complete tear. Totally speculation on my part but it was obvious that this injury would be sidelining him long enough to where a Noonan recall would be required.

Thoughts on the move? Should the Milwaukee Admirals lock up Ian White for the rest of the season to sure-up their defense? Do the Admirals need more defensemen in camp?

  1. Hope he didn’t catch a quarter with his skate because apparently Griffins fans were throwing quarters on the ice during the game
