Admirals Ink Two to AHL Deals
Milwaukee, WI— The Milwaukee Admirals announced today that they have signed defenseman Jeff Foss and goaltender Zoltán Hetényi to American Hockey League contracts.
Foss returns to Milwaukee for his second professional season after splitting the 2010-11 campaign between the Admirals and Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. Last year the Moorhead, MN native posted an assist and 32 penalty minutes in 28 games with the Ads and also skated in a pair of playoff contests. A 2011 R.P.I. graduate, Foss skated in 11 games with the Cyclones, recording an assist, four penalty minutes and +5 rating.
Hetényi, a native of Budapest, Hungary, will make his North American professional debut his year. He began last season with Jokerit of SM-ligga in Finland where he notched a 1.75 goals against average and a .936 save percentage in seven games before being loaned to Kiekko-Vantaa where he tallied a 3.04 GAA with a .912 save percentage in 11 contests. The 24-year old netminder (2/18/1988), has represented his native country many times in international competition and helped Hungary qualify for the top division of the 2009 World Championships, their first appearance there in 70 years.
The Admirals will open the home portion of their schedule on Friday, October 19th at 7:00 pm at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
