From the very end of January to today Miikka Salomäki has only played in two games for the Milwaukee Admirals. Today a source confirmed to me that Salomäki will in fact miss the rest of this season due to shoulder surgery.
This comes as a blow to both Salomäki and the Admirals. It had been a fantastic sophomore season for the Finn who was able to score a goal in his NHL debut in Nashville back on January 9th.
With the Admirals this season he had produced 18 points (7 goals, 11 assists) with a plus/minus rating of +15 and 30 penalty minutes in 38 games. He was successfully building upon his rookie season of 2013-14 where he led the Admirals in scoring with 50 points (20 goals, 30 assists).

Really unfortunate for him and the team. The Ads could really use his energy right now. At least he got to make his NHL debut this season. I’m sure that was pretty special for him. Hopefully he can come back strong next season.
