Yesterday’s news just so happened to fall in-line with today’s featured player in Fifteen. Garrett Noonan was a fan request early on in this feature but, for reasons such as yesterday can kind of show, it hasn’t been that easy to get him on. Luckily for all of us I just so happened to get this interview with him this past weekend before his reassignment back to the Cincinnati Cyclones in the ECHL.
When Noonan arrives back to the Cyclones roster he adds a huge boost to their lineup. He hasn’t had quite the level of success with the Milwaukee Admirals in the AHL as he has in the ECHL this season but I take that more as a sign of things to come.
Taylor Aronson is currently in the run of his second successive season as one of the top defenseman on the Admirals roster. That came after a 2013-14 season in which Aronson was the top scoring defenseman on the Cyclones roster with 38 points (6 goals, 32 assists) in 65 games. Jump ahead and you’ll see that Noonan is currently the Cyclones top scoring defenseman with 31 points (7 goals, 24 assists) in 40 games. He was also named the ECHL Player of the Week back in the middle of February. He’s been putting in great work. He’s just caught up in the number of defensemen stacked on top of him at left-side defense in order to crack the Admirals setup this season. It’s a shame, but it hasn’t prevented him from putting in solid performances for the Cyclones in his second season of professional hockey.
Thanks very much to The Professor for spending time with The Doctor to do this interview. Professor Noonan’s next game should come Friday night when the Cincinnati Cyclones take on the Quad City Mallards. As for Fifteen? More interviews will be conducted in due time.
