Ahead of the Milwaukee Admirals first game of the 2016 Calder Cup Playoffs they have added a familiar face to the roster in the form of forward Zac Larraza. The 23-year old had previously signed a PTO Contract with the Admirals back in mid-December. He now signs yet another PTO Contract at the dawn of the AHL’s playoff season.
With the Admirals Larraza managed to play 10 games while scoring 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists). He collected 13 shots on goal and did not take any penalties while holding an even plus/minus rating. This season has been his debut season of professional hockey and, while the better majority of his time spent has been with the Manchester Monarchs of the ECHL, he has played for two other AHL teams than the Admirals: Portland Pirates and San Diego Gulls. In total, Larraza’s 2015-16 campaign across the AHL and ECHL has garnered 38 points (23 goals, 15 assists) from 63 games of work.
Of note, Larraza’s first stint with the Admirals saw him wearing #28 with the team. That has since been claimed by defenseman Corey Potter. As such, Larraza will become the first Admirals player to wear #20 since Miikka Salomäki who wore it earlier this season.
