Press Release via Milwaukee Admirals:
Milwaukee, WI–The Admirals have signed forwards Eric Robinson and Justin Florek to American Hockey League contracts.
Robinson had three goals and an assist in five games with the Admirals to go along with nine points (5g-4a) in just eight contests with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL before his season was cut short by a knee injury. The Foxboro, MA native played four years of college hockey at Dartmouth and made his pro debut with the Ads in 2015.
Florek joins the Admirals after tallying seven goals and nine assists while playing in all 76 games for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. The Marquette, MI native posted career highs in goals (19), points (38), and plus/minus (+17) with the Providence Bruins in 2013-14. He has four games of NHL experience, scoring a goal and adding an assist with Boston in 2014.
Milwaukee heads to San Antonio next weekend to open the regular season on Saturday, October 15 at 7 pm against the Rampage. The Ads commence their home schedule on Saturday, October 29 at 6 pm when they host the Iowa Wild at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena
This is a solid depth move for the Admirals which strengthens the forward position and should also give added pieces to the Cincinnati Cyclones at the ECHL level. The Admirals pre-season training camp concludes this coming Thursday and moves to cement the opening day AHL roster should be done and dusted by then.
