Press Release via Milwaukee Admirals:
Milwaukee, WI—The Milwaukee Admirals announced today that they have signed defenseman Jimmy Oligny to a two-year, American Hockey League contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2017-18 season.
Oligny leads Admirals defenseman and is second on the team with a +12 rating. The La Sarre, QC native has three goals and 10 assists for 13 points to go along with a club best 73 penalty minutes in 52 games with Milwaukee this season.
The 6-0, 203-pound blueliner tallied five points (1g-4a) in 53 contests with the Admirals during his rookie campaign last season. He spent four years of junior hockey with the Prince Edward Island Rockets of the QMJHL from 2009-13, recording 123 points (29g-94a) and 531 penalty minutes in 302 games.

Oligny was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Admirals ahead of the 2014-15 season. In his first year of professional hockey he played 53 games, scored 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists), had a plus/minus rating of -2, and 46 penalty minutes.
This season, like his fellow French Fry pal Frédérick Gaudreau who also signed as an undrafted free agent the same summer, Oligny has taken an incredible step forward and has been one of the top performers at his position. Oligny has played 52 games this season and has the team’s top plus/minus rating (+12) while seeing his offensive numbers also take a leap forward: 13 points (3 goals, 10 assists).
