Former Penn State Men’s Hockey Forward Kevin Wall Signs With AHL Milwaukee Admirals
Former Penn State men’s hockey forward Kevin Wall signed a two-year contract with the AHL Milwaukee Admirals August 18.
The Admirals are affiliates of the Nashville Predators and are fresh off a hot season where they reached the Western Conference Finals.
Wall was drafted by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2019 with the 181st overall pick but couldn’t come to terms with the team, waiving the club’s rights to his contract. Nashville’s system didn’t wait long to pick up Wall and only took four days after the official expiration of the draft pick to lock in the Nittany Lion for two years.
Wall leaves Happy Valley as the reigning team MVP and finished his college campaign at 10th on Penn State’s all-time points list with 86. Wall’s production and consistency were first-rate, as he played in all 39 tilts last season and led the team in scoring from 2021 to 2023. Wall also sits at No. 4 on Penn State’s all-time shots list with 447 attempted strikes.
The Penfield, New York, native played a massive role in last year’s playoff push, netting the game-winning overtime goal in Columbus to push past No. 9 Ohio State in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal. He also tacked on a goal and an assist in Penn State’s thrashing of No. 13 Michigan Tech in the NCAA Regionals.
The Admirals found a clutch, offensive machine in Wall, who joins fellow Nittany Lion and linemate Connor MacEachern in the AHL.
