To AHL Deal

July 13, 2018

Anchorage Native Played 40 Games in San Diego Last Season


Milwaukee, WI—The Milwaukee Admirals announced today that the team has signed defenseman Brian Cooper to an American Hockey League contract for the 2018-19 season. 


Cooper joins the Admirals after playing 40 games last season for the San Diego Gulls (AHL). The 24-year-old, who just finished his second pro season, tallied nine points last year, all coming from assists. Those nine points were one shy of the ten points (4G-6A) he posted in his rookie campaign with the Gulls in 16-17. The 5’10,” 197-pound defenseman was drafted in the fifth round, 127th overall, by Anaheim in 2012. 


Before turning pro, Cooper played four years at the University of Nebraska-Omaha where he led the club in +9 during his senior season. The Anchorage, AK native finished his college career 10th in Mavericks history in both penalty minutes, with 181, and plus/minus, at plus-19. Cooper joined the Gulls for five games upon the completion of his college career in 2015-16.


Cooper  and the Admirals will play their home opener on Saturday, October 13 at 6 pm at Panther Arena, while the rest of the schedule will be released later this summer.  


Season tickets for the 2018-19 campaign are on sale and start for as little as $135. For more information on season tickets fans should call the Admirals office at 414-227-0550 or log on to
