Scott Ford Signed to One-Year Deal
Milwaukee, WI—The Milwaukee Admirals announced today that defenseman and former Captain Scott Ford has signed a one-year contract, his sixth season with the team.
“Scott has not only been an integral part of our team on the ice, but he has also been a fantastic member of our community,” said Admirals Governor and CEO Harris Turer. “It’s great to have him back for another season in an Admirals uniform.”
Ford is the team’s all-time AHL leader in games played with 300, a record he broke on April 12 last season. In parts of five years with the Admirals the Fort St. John’s, BC native has totaled 11 goals and 26 assists for 37 points and 480 penalty minutes. Those PIMs are the second best on the team since joining the AHL in 2001. In addition, Ford has accumulated a +38 rating, which included a +24 rating in 2010-11, the best by an Admiral since the 2003-04 season.
The Brown University alum has also been an important leader during his time with the Admirals. He wore the “C” as the team’s captain during the 2011-12 season and was an assistant captain in three other years.
Last year Ford, who can be found on Twitter at @SFordy4, started the season in the St. Louis organization, but was acquired by Nashville in a trade in late February and proceeded to help the Admirals go 15-4-1 down the stretch and qualify for the post-season for 11th consecutive season, the longest current streak in the AHL.
Ford and the Admirals will kick off the home portion of their schedule on Saturday, October 19 at 7 pm. The remainder of the schedule will be released later this summer. Season tickets for 2013-14 are on sale now for as little as $180. For more information or to order season tickets fans should call (414) 227-0550.
In addition, the Admirals are offering a special offer for groups for opening night. Groups of 10 or more that book their tickets with a $100 deposit before July 26 will get their seats for 1/2 price!
