Admirals Set 2009-10 Schedule
Milwaukee, WI--Milwaukee Admirals President Jon Greenberg announced today that the team will open their 2009-10 season on Saturday, October 3rd at 7:00 pm in Chicago against the Wolves. After six road games, the Ads will embark on the home portion of their schedule on Saturday, October 24th at 7:30 pm against the Manitoba Moose at the Bradley Center. This season’s home opener is the latest in franchise history.
The Admirals will play an 80-game, unbalanced schedule that will conclude over six months later when the team hosts the Grand Rapids Griffins on Sunday, April 11th.
“The 2009-10 season promises to be another exciting year for us, both on and off the ice,” noted Greenberg, who begins his fourth season as the Ads President. “With all of the fun and entertaining promotions off the ice and an excellent team on the ice, we will continue to provide our fans with a fantastic experience when they visit the Bradley Center.”
At the home opener, all fans in attendance will receive a schedule magnet of the 2009-10 season, courtesy of Old Orchard Juice. The team’s popular FM106 Country Music night and the rest of the promotional schedule will be released at a future date.
The Admirals will do battle with two new teams during the upcoming campaign: the Texas Stars and the Abbotsford Heat. The Ads will take on the Heat, the AHL affiliate for Calgary Flames, for the first time when they travel to Abbotsford, BC for a pair of games on October 16th and 17th. Milwaukee will get their first glimpse of the Stars, the Dallas Stars farm club on Wednesday, November 25th in Austin.
January is the busiest month of the season for the Ads, as the team will play 17 contests during the first month with seven of those games taking place at home and ten coming on the road. March is the next busiest month with 13 games, April is the least populated with just six contests, but all of them will be within the first 11 days.
