On this rainy Wisconsin day, November Rain, I made the trip down to the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena to get a look at the Milwaukee Admirals coming off of their 7-3 win on the road over the Rockford IceHogs. Your long story short. Not too much.
There is one name absent from the lines and today’s practice, Jonathan Diaby. He was assigned from the Admirals to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL yesterday and will be set for action tonight. Diaby so far this season has suited up just once for the Admirals and acted as a seventh choice defenseman during the “food poisoning” situation that stirring all kinds of roster activity on the day. Last season at the ECHL level Diaby scored 6 points (3 goals, 3 assists) in 43 games with a plus/minus rating of +4 to go along with 51 penalty minutes.
I suppose it wasn’t the most ordinary of practices. It’s not every day that the Admirals line up against a cow in net but today was that day. Udderly a-moo-sing puns aside, cheers to all for their contributions on the Twitters today, the occasion came from a Chick-fil-A commercial that the team filmed. I’m excited to see how the finished product comes out and, hopefully, the commercial makes its way to a YouTube nearest you when it does.
After the entertainment of “cow on ice” was finished I rounded up a few interviews. Today I chatted with Admirals assistant coach Scott Ford as well as Justin Kirkland, Frédérick Gaudreau, Adam Pardy, and Matt White. Here were the sounds from the Arena after today’s practice.
With the probability that a Harry Zolnierczyk returns to the Milwaukee Admirals in the near future who do you feel is the likely odd-man out when he does come back?
