Arvidsson Named Rookie of the Month
Milwaukee, WI--The American Hockey League announced today that Admirals right wing Viktor Arvidsson has been selected as the CCM/AHL Rookie of the Month for January.
Arvidsson scored six goals and added seven assists for 13 points in 12 games last month, helping the Admirals to a 10-2-0-0 record, which included a franchise record nine-game winning streak.
Arvidsson notched the game-winning goal and added an assist to help Milwaukee to a 4-1 win over Hamilton on Jan. 3, and tallied a pair of goals in a 5-0 win over Charlotte on Jan. 10. He assisted on the winning goal in the final minute of regulation on Jan. 16 at Utica, and his two-goal effort on Jan. 17 at Adirondack included scoring the winner in overtime. Arvidsson ran his point-scoring streak to six games (5g, 3a) with a goal in a 4-3 win vs. Iowa on Jan. 23, and closed out the month with an assist in Milwaukee’s 4-0 win at Grand Rapids on Jan. 31.
A fourth-round pick by Nashville in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Arvidsson ranks fourth among AHL rookies with 30 points (15 goals, 15 assists) in 43 games for Milwaukee this season. The 21-year-old Arvidsson played the last two seasons with his hometown Skelleftea AIK in the Swedish Hockey League, helping them to back-to-back league championships.
In recognition of his achievement, Arvidsson will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Admirals home game.
Arvidsson and the Admirals return to the ice tonight when they host the Lake Erie Monsters at 7 pm at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
