The Chatterbox, Vol. 83

It was the third day of training camp for the Milwaukee Admirals at the MSOE Kern Center. They are set to play an exhibition game tomorrow night at the college facility. To get another good look at the team before then I trekked in to see just how things looked after the latest round of roster cuts.

Oddly enough, there weren’t really specific line drills performed at practice today. The team was dressed in white and black uniforms. When I saw this I assumed the roster was split up to do a mock-scrimmage or something extensive but that wasn’t really the case. So, for the additions of Colton Sissons and David Moss in camp, lines weren’t exactly noticeable. Prior to tomorrow night’s exhibition game should be a little more telling.

One of the new names in town at practice today was Juuse Saros. The 20-year old Finnish netminder looked sharp during multiple shooting drills and I’m very impressed by his side-to-side movements. That photo I snapped up top for this story? He made the initial save, the rebound kicked out, and he pushed aside the follow up. He’s quick, a wee lad, but oh so very quick. I’m hoping he either gets the net tomorrow night or in full for Saturday night. That all depends on Marek Mazanec‘s travel arrangements and fatigue from jet lag because he is still not in Milwaukee yet.

After practice I had the chance to speak with new assistant coach Scott Ford, winger Max Görtz, and the aforementioned Sissons. This is what everyone had to say this afternoon.

Apologies that the full interview of Ford is up instead of specific soundbites. As you can guess though. That’d have been a lot of individual audio clips and doing that some times makes the load time of a specific Chatterbox run slower. I just assumed help out and drop the whole thing down. Pro Tip: If you ever experience issues with playing the audio clips I suggested cleaning up your cache and trying it again. That usually all it takes.
