Congratulations to Claude Noel on being named head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets! Claude is very deserving of being a head coach in the NHL. He certainly has a difficult job ahead trying to turn around a team mid-season but if given a chance, I think Claude will be an excellent coach in the National Hockey League. I wish him the best of luck except when they are playing Nashville.
We just came off a spectacular January where we had three crowds over 10,000 and averaged more than 7,000 fans a game. Your support means everything to us and we are grateful that you choose to spend your discretionary income with the Milwaukee Admirals. We strive every day to make our games the best entertainment experience in Milwaukee and we hope that you have fun when come out to watch Admirals hockey.
February is certainly full of more promotional fun as well as a steady dose of home games. We’ve already played one, a solid win over Texas on the Salute to #2 Night, and there are seven more home games ahead, all against divisional rivals this month. Speaking of #2 Night, thanks to Green Bay Packers Kicker Mason Crosby and his wife, Molly, for joining us that night. They are really nice people and it was a pleasure to meet and work with them.
