In an effort to get more playing time for their players of the future, Blake Geoffrion will join Jon Blum in Milwaukee, playing top line minutes for the Admirals.

Geoffrion has been out the last six games with an upper body injury so he will now be in a position to play his way back into shape. Based on quotes that Josh Cooper obtained this morning from Barry Trotz, the move is not unexpected.
