The Milwaukee Admirals have recalled forward Anthony Richard and defenseman Jonathan Diaby from the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. This news comes following a game in which the Nashville Predators saw both Colton Sissons and James Neal leave early due to injury. It is expected that moves from AHL to NHL are forthcoming.
Since both were most recently reassigned to the Cyclones both Richard and Diaby played a single game in the ECHL. The Cyclones lost at home to the Quad City Mallards 4-2.
For Richard the last week or so must feel like a whirlwind. He traveled with the Admirals from Milwaukee to Cleveland to take part in last Thursday’s 1-0 win over the Cleveland Monsters. The next day he traveled in state to join the Cyclones for their home game against the Atlanta Gladiators in a 6-5 overtime loss that saw him score a goal and an assist – both firsts in his pro career. Rather than join the Admirals in Cleveland the next day for the follow-up game against the Monsters he traveled back to Milwaukee only to be reassigned back to Cincinnati on Tuesday. He played in that lone contest during the recent ECHL stint on Wednesday and possibly received word of this recall back to Milwaukee while the Cyclones prepare to face the Reading Royals tonight in Reading, Pennsylvania. Such is the AHL/ECHL hockey life, eh?
