|In his six seasons with the Admirals Steve Tuttle could always find a way to fill the stat sheet. In his 339 games played in Milwaukee, which is ninth all-time, he compiled 260 points to place him tenth in team history. |
“Steve was a quiet guy off the ice, but he was tenacious on it,” said former Admirals teammate Dave Mackey. “He was a guy who was deceptively fast and he used that speed and fantastic hands to develop a great scoring touch.”
Tuttle came to Milwaukee midway through the 1992 season and managed to put up 61 points in just 51 games in that first season. He finished the year sixth in points although he played significantly less games than most other players. To attain 61 points Tuttle put the puck in the back of the net 27 times and assisted his teammates on 34 goals.
During the 1993-94 season Tuttle racked up 71 points, the highest in his Admiral career for a single season and the 32 goals he recorded in 1995-96, to go along with a +18 rating, were the best he did in Milwaukee.
A University of Wisconsin alum, Tuttle was loaned to Peoria for part of the 1994-95 season, but returned to the Admirals the following year and played the next three seasons with the Ads.
Tuttle retired from the Admirals in 1998 but his name lives on in the record books as he is 10th all-time in goals (121) and 14th in assists (139).
