Inside The Milwaukee Admirals’ 10-Game Win Streak

Admirals

Fueled by many of the Nashville Predators’ top prospects, the Milwaukee Admirals are the hottest team in the American Hockey League.

Behind plenty of offense and lights-out goaltending, the Admirals have reeled off 10 straight wins and remain undefeated in the month of January — the longest win streak in the AHL this season and the third double-digit win streak the Admirals have had since joining the AHL in 2001.

It’s also the longest win streak in the AHL since the Utica Comets won 13 during the 2021-2022 season, and three behind Milwaukee’s franchise-best win streak of 13 set during the 2019-2020 season.

For context, the longest win streak in AHL history belongs to the Norfolk Admirals, who won 28 straight games from Feb. 10 to Apr. 12 during the 2011-2012 season.

Here’s a closer look at how the Admirals have ran off a perfect month to date:

Milwaukee also leads the AHL in overtime wins (7).

Milwaukee has one more game left before closing out a perfect month — the San Diego Gulls at home on Jan. 30.
