Milwaukee, WI—The Admirals announced today that the team has signed goaltender Tom McCollum to an AHL Contract for the 2018-19 season.
McCollum has spent the majority of his career with the Grand Rapids Griffins, winning the Calder Cup with the club in 2013, and totaling a 123-105-9 record with a 2.76 goals against average, a .906 save percentage, and eight shutouts in eight seasons in Grand Rapids. Last season the Sanborn, NY native netted a 20-14-3 mark with a 2.64 GAA and a .912 save % in 37 games with the Griffs.
McCollum has been a proverbial thorn in the Admirals side since entering the AHL in 2009, going 13-5-2 with a miniscule 2.14 GAA in 22 games against Milwaukee. Last season alone he was 4-0-1, allowing just eight goals in five contests and stopping 94.5% of the shots he faced.
