MILWAUKEE, W.I. – The Henderson Silver Knights will take on the Milwaukee Admirals in the first game of a road back-to-back. It will be their second and final series against the Admirals this season; they are 0-2-0 against Milwaukee. Puck drop is set for 4 p.m. PT. 


  • Since returning from his callup with the Vegas Golden Knights, forward Brendan Brisson has seven points (3G, 4A) in his last five games, scoring five of them (2G, 3A) in Henderson’s most recent series against the Abbotsford Canucks. He has notched 33 points (15G, 18A) in 45 AHL games this season, as well as 7 points (2G, 5A) in 13 NHL games. “I think the biggest thing is just confidence,” he said after Saturday’s morning skate. “When you’re playing up there, it’s a great feeling to get that callup and be in the NHL. When I got sent down, I had some confidence…I feel good about my game and just trying to keep that momentum going.” 
  • Forward Grigori Denisenko notched 4 points (2G, 2A) against Abbotsford on March 16 and 17. Denisenko, who represented the Silver Knights at the AHL All-Star Classic, leads the team in points with 46 (16G, 30A) in 54 games this season.
