Best Former Milwaukee Admiral Who Has Gone On To Greatness:
During three seasons in Milwaukee, goalie Pekka Rinne became a two-time American Hockey League All-Star and led the team to a trio of playoff appearances. The Finland native has played parts of 11 seasons for the NHL’s Nashville Predators and led the team to its first-ever Stanley Cup finals this past season. He also ranked as the all-time greatest Admiral in a poll of fans, former coaches and players. “He also might have been the nicest and most generous with his time of any player we’ve ever had,” Admirals spokesman Charlie Larson says.
