Augusta, GA – Augusta Lynx Head Coach Bob Ferguson announced today that forward John Laliberte has signed a professional tryout contract with the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League. Laliberte becomes the fourth Lynx player in the month of December alone to be called up to the AHL. He joins Matt Christie and Ryan Dingle, who are with the Portland Pirates, and Aaron Slattengren who is with the Manitoba Moose.
Laliberte played in 27 games last year with the Admirals, scoring 10 points. He was having a very good season with the Lynx thus far, scoring 28 points (15g, 13a) in 29 games played for Augusta. “We are very happy for John to get this opportunity,” said Ferguson. “We have several players having great seasons so far, so we can’t be surprised that many of them are getting opportunities right now to play in the AHL.”
