Former Penn State forward Kevin Wall has signed a two-year contract with the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL. The Admirals are the AHL affiliate of the Nashville Predators.

Wall was an offensive anchor for the Nittany Lions collecting 86 points in 125 career games donning the blue and white.

Playing on the wing he helped lead the still young Penn State program to its longest run in the NCAA tournament during this past season. The Nittany Lions bowed out in the Allentown regional final, falling to powerhouse Michigan in overtime.

Wall will now join a couple of other former Nittany Lion forwards carving out a hockey career in the AHL. Ashton Calder and Connor MacEachern each earned themselves AHL contracts for the upcoming 2023-2024 season.

This is not the first time the Nashville Predators organization has looked to Hockey Valley this summer. Incoming Nittany Lion Freshman Aiden Fink was selected by the Predators in the seventh round of the most recent NHL draft.

Wall and the Admirals will begin their season with a trip to Chicago on October 14th.
