(RAPID CITY, SD) – The Rapid City Rush announced today that goaltender Adam Carlson has been called-up to the AHL’s Milwaukee Admirals ahead of the team’s stretch against the division rival Chicago Wolves.
Carlson heads up to the AHL for the first time this season, but is no stranger to the league itself. In his professional career of three seasons, the 6’3”, 195-pound net-minder has played in six games with the Hershey Bears, going 2-3-0 with a 2.85 GAA and .903 SV%.
He leaves the Rush as the leader in every statistical category, with 19 appearances, 18 starts, a 10-5-2-2 record, 2 shutouts, a 2.49 GAA, and .930 SV%. On the ECHL statistics leaderboards, Carlson’s name comes up quite frequently among the league’s top goaltenders: he’s tied for fifth in the league in wins (10), tied for second in the league in shutouts (2), tied for sixth in goals against average (2.48), and is third in the league in save percentage (.930), minutes played (1,089), and saves (602).
The Rush, with their marathon road trip now behind them, begin a five-game home-stand to close out the year, with a pair of matchups coming before the Christmas holiday against the Wichita Thunder. Puck drop for the first game tonight, December 21st, is slated for 7:05 p.m. MST at Premier Home Mortgage Ice in Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.
