Justin Florek (18)


5th year left wing Justin Florek(18) signs his first minor league deal agreeing to 2016/2017 with Milwaukee Admirals.

He’s already played 297 AHL games with initial team Providence Bruins until last season, when he signed with New York Islanders but spent the entire campaign with affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

The fairly large player has skated 4 games in the big league with draft team Boston Bruins scoring a goal and an assist with a +1 rating before being sent back returned to the farm squad.

It’s a bit surprising the big power forward hasn’t had another look even though he scored a career high 19 goals and 38 points in the year of his recall, then put up a best 24 assists and another 35 points in the next season.

The 26-year old unrestricted free agent may catch fire with his new team in a new conference and may even catch the attention of parent club Nashville Predators.
