Jeremy Smith: A Pitcher with No Run Support

 Jeremy Smith, goaltender for the Milwaukee Admirals, has been playing very good hockey this year. His record doesn’t reflect that as he is 3-6 on the year but his hard work and determination will make it a matter of time before he gets recognition as one of the best AHL goalies on the season…if only the Admirals can give him some goal support (sound familiar?)

Smith is ranked 15 in the AHL in GAA with 2.27, but in context against those who have played 7 or more games Smith ranks 7th. His SV% is .910, very respectable but alas his win/loss record is staggeringly bad at 3-6. In comparison, Magnus Hellberg, enjoying his first season with the Admirals, is 2-0 but his numbers have been atrocious with a 4.35 GAA and .838 SV%. The only other goalie in the AHL with a losing record and similar numbers to Smith is former Predator Dan Ellis with a 4-5 record.

Jeremy Smith has run across some bad luck in his losses. Against Lake Erie, Smith only let in 2 goals and the Monsters goalie Pickard put on an unbelieveable performance stopping 42 of 43 shots with Milwaukee outshooting Lake Erie 15-1 in the third period.

The next night, Smith would shutout the Peoria Rivermen by a score of 3-0 giving Smith his 8th career shutout with Milwaukee. This moves him to fifth all time for the Ads, one behind Mark Dekanich.

The problem has been with the Admirals not giving Smith goal support and instead spending way to much time parading to the penalty box. A glimmer of hope has now come back into the Admirals lineup with the triumphant return of Patrick Cehlin who posted a 3 point game (1 G, 2A) against the Chicago Wolves. This additional offensive presence will help Smith with point production and as long as Smith continues his accomplished play in net, the Admirals should be able to take advantage and score on more opportunities.

Milwaukee plays tonight @ Rockford Ice Hogs (Blackhawks affiliate) at 7:05 Central. Look to this link to watch the Admirals play tonight for those needing a hockey fix after the negotiations this week for the NHL took a sour turn yesterday.
