Ads Sign Tom McCollum to AHL Deal

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.

One thought on “McCollum signs with Milwaukee”

  1. Good for him and great for the Griffins and Wings organization. He blocked Matejovski (spelling wrong for sure) from getting more than a sniff of AHL action. We wont know what that kid could have been because in true form, a veteran took his spot
