The Milwaukee Admirals have signed Trevor Mingoia to a one-year AHL contract for the 2017-18 season. The 25-year old right winger played the best part of last season with the Atlanta Gladiators of the ECHL and, similar to recent Admirals signing Angelo Miceli, was part of a trade that put him into the clutches of the Norfolk Admirals. While both are under contract to Milwaukee it is likely both start next season in Norfolk.
Press Release via Milwaukee Admirals:
Milwaukee, WI—The Admirals have signed right wing Trevor Mingoia to an American Hockey League contract for the 2017-18 season.
Mingoia spent last season with the Atlanta Gladiators (ECHL) where he tallied 21 goals and added 19 assists for 40 points while skating in 60 games in his first full professional season. He has played in six career AHL contests, including two last season with San Antonio and four in 2015-16 with the Albany Devils.
The Fairport, NY native played his college hockey at Providence where he notched 83 points (34g-49a) in 102 career games. During his senior season he was second on the team in points (37) and tied for second with a +24 rating while the Friars to the NCAA Tournament.

What pops out to me first is that Mingoia was part of the Providence squad that defeated Matt O’Connor and Boston University in the 2015 NCAA Championship game. Those two are now teammates as O’Connor is also under the Admirals umbrella as well.
In Mingoia’s three-year run with Providence he produced 89 points (37 goals, 52 assists) in 120 games. He then joined the Albany Devils on an ATO contract freshly removed from college where he played 4 games before signing with the Gladiators of the ECHL for the 2016-17 season. He was really productive in the ECHL last season: 40 points (21 goals, 19 assists) in 60 games. He also had a cup of coffee with the San Antonio Rampage last season where he played 2 games.
