Milwaukee, WI—The Admirals announced today that the team has signed forward Robert Carpenter to a one-year AHL Contract for the 2021-22 season.
Carpenter joins the Admirals from the Bridgeport SoundTigers where he has spent the past two seasons.

The North Reading, MA native played four seasons of college hockey at Boston University where he topped the century mark in career points with 102 (56g-46a) while skating in 144 games.

During his senior season he served as BU’s Captain and posted 10 goals and nine assists in 27 games.
