The Scouting Report
Despite a winning record and star turns from young wing Patrick Maroon and rookie goalie Frederik Andersen, the Admirals were two points short of the last playoff spot during the 2012–2013 season. On October 11, the Admirals return to the ice in their home opener against the Binghamton Senators—who finished second in the East Division last year. The next weekend, the Admirals welcome the Albany Devils for a two-game set, spurred by fans eager to help Norfolk bring home its second Calder Cup in three years without having to build a giant trophy magnet.
The Norfolk Admirals joined the AHL as an expansion team in the 2000–01 season. After qualifying for the playoffs nearly every season, the team’s historic 2011–12 campaign pushed them over the top and brought home their first Calder Cup. That year, the Admirals closed the season on a 28-game winning streak, the longest in the history of professional hockey since 1975, when brick walls were deemed ineligible to be goalies. Now an affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks, the Admirals still take to the ice at Norfolk Scope Arena and face off before crowds of up to 8,700 devout fans.
