The Milwaukee Admirals have signed goaltender Kyle Hayton to an amateur try-out (ATO) contract. The 23-year old from Denver, Colorado recently completed a collegiate season in-state with the Wisconsin Badgers.
Hayton appeared in 27 games in the 2017-18 season for the Badgers. He held a record of 9-12-3 and had a 3.09 goals against average with a 0.890 save percentage. The Badgers ended the season in sixth place of the Big Ten Conference and had an overall record of 14-19-3.
Prior to joining the Badgers program Hayton played three-seasons at St. Lawrence University. In his time there he held a 2.09 goals against average and 0.934 save percentage in 104 games. He also played in the USHL for the Sioux City Musketeers from 2012-14.
The Admirals will look to finish off their 2017-18 season this weekend after being eliminated from playoff contention on Tuesday night. They face the Iowa Wild tomorrow at the Wells Fargo Arena and once again the next night after a lengthy bus ride back to the UW-Milwaukee Arena for a Saturday night tilt and the season finale.
