MILWAUKEE – This morning, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled an officially licensed, limited-edition Milwaukee Admirals Win Steak Counter Bobblehead featuring the team’s mascot Roscoe on a hockey puck base that has a win streak counter that fans will be able to change. On Monday afternoon, the Admirals defeated the Manitoba Moose 4-3 to extend the franchise record winning streak to a remarkable 17 games. The 17-game winning streak is tied with the Philadelphia Phantoms (2004-2005) and Bakersfield Condors (2018-2019) for the second longest in the American Hockey League’s 88 seasons.

Wearing the team’s black, white, and light blue uniform with a No. 98 jersey, the Roscoe bobblehead is holding hockey pucks in his hands while standing on an hockey puck base. The front of the base includes an Admirals Win Streak Counter that fans will be able to adjust to track the team’s victory total.

Each bobblehead will be individually numbered to 2,024, and they are currently available to pre-order exclusively through the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store. The bobbleheads, which are expected to ship in June, are $35 each plus a flat-rate shipping charge of $8 per order.

On Monday, February 19th, the Admirals came from behind on the road to beat the Manitoba Moose 4-3 to extend the team’s winning streak to a franchise-record 17 games. The Admirals have yet to lose in 2024, with the team’s last defeat coming on December 31st, 2023, at the Rockford IceHogs. The team’s home winning streak dates back to December 20th and sits at franchise record 14 games heading into their next home game, which is on Saturday again the rival Chicago Wolves. The Admirals will look to extend their winning streak to 18 games when they play at the Chicago Wolves on Thursday.  The longest win streak in AHL history belongs to the Norfolk Admirals, who won 28 straight games during the 2011-12 season. With a win on Thursday, the Admirals would have the second longest winning streak in AHL history.

Founded in 1970 as an amateur team in Wisconsin known as the Milwaukee Wings, the franchise changed its name to the Admirals after one season and played an independent schedule until joining the semi-pro United States Hockey League in 1973. When the USHL transitioned to a junior league in 1977, the Admirals moved to the International Hockey League and played in the IHL until it folded in 2001, when they joined the AHL with five other IHL franchises.

Now an affiliate of the NHL’s Nashville Predators, the Admirals won their first Calder Cup title in the 2003-04 season, defeating Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in a four-game sweep in the finals. The Admirals also advanced to the Calder Cup Finals in 2005-06 but lost to Hershey in six games for the title. During rebranding efforts in 1998, the Admirals created a new mascot named Roscoe, who is a sea dog-like animal with bright orange fur, a hockey puck-shaped nose, and wears a bicorne admiral’s hat.

“We’re excited to release this officially licensed Milwaukee Admirals Win Streak Counter Bobblehead featuring Roscoe,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “As one of the AHL’s most successful teams in the past 20-plus years, this win counter should get quite a workout in the years to come. This bobblehead is sure to be a must-have for hockey-loving fans in Milwaukee.”
