Going stir crazy for sports content?! We feel you, Milwaukee. Enter Saturday Night Shootouts featuring encore airings of My24 Sports presentations of Milwaukee Admirals hockey!
My24 will revisit our select schedule of game broadcasts from this season of AHL hockey action. On March 12th, the Admirals' 50th Season was suspended due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. No additional updates have come to light from the American Hockey League or any of the Major League Sports to date as the world fights the outbreak and awaits a return to some sense of normalcy. At the time the season came to a screeching halt, your Milwaukee Admirals were sitting on top of the League Standings at 41-14-5-3 and were coming off back-to-back wins.
The team has been delivering its fast paced action from the rink since it was founded as an amateur club back in 1970, and now you can enjoy a return to the goals, hard checks, and saves from the comfort of your living room! Five encore broadcasts are scheduled to help us all ride out the pandemic from the safety of home. Remember to do your part. Stay home and save lives. #StayHomeMKE

For those unfamiliar, the Milwaukee Admirals are a professional ice hockey team in the American Hockey League's Central Division in the Western Conference. They play at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Panther Arena. They have been affiliated with the NHL's Nashville Predators since that team's founding in 1998, serving as their top-level affiliate. The Ads earned the franchise's one league championship and Calder Cup during the 2003-04 season.
The Voice of the Admirals Aaron Sims handles the play-by-play duties for the TV games and he is joined by Nolan Yonkman, who provides analysis. Yonkman spent four years with the Admirals from 2006-10 and was team Captain for two seasons. A veteran of over 1,000 professional games in the AHL, NHL, and Europe, Yonkman recently retired from playing.
