Milwaukee, WI—Milwaukee Admirals forward Bobby Butler will attempt to become the fourth Admirals player to win gold when he competes for Team USA in the 2018 Winter Olympics  in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Butler is a three-time American Hockey League All-Star, who has posted 189 points on 99 goals and 90 assists in 251 career AHL contests with the Admirals, Binghamton Senators, Albany Devils, and San Antonio Rampage. As a rookie in 2010-11 he was selected to the AHL All-Star contest in the regular season and then led league rookies in post season scoring with 17 points to help the Senators to the Calder Cup Championship.
