Norfolk Admirals Press Release

NORFOLK, Va. – The Norfolk Admirals have recalled forward Philip-Michael Devos (DUH-voss) from the ECHL’s Florida Everblades, Admirals General Manager Julien BriseBois announced today.

Devos, 21, a 5-foot-11, 184-pound center from Sorel-Tracy, Québec, has recorded four goals and 15 points for the Everblades in the first 20 games of his professional career. He is tied for second on Florida in points while leading the team with 11 assists. He has also recorded two power play goals. Devos made his professional debut on October 14 vs. Gwinnett, recording an assist. He notched his first pro goal two games later on October 22 at Trenton.

Last season, Devos won the Jean Béliveau Trophy as the top scorer in the Québec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). In 68 games between the Victoriaville Tigres and Gatineau Olympiques, Devos scored 47 goals and 114 points. He also registered 31 penalty minutes and a plus-29 rating. Devos led the QMJHL in points and ranked second in goals and assists (67).

Despite appearing in only 41 of Victoriaville’s 68 games prior to being traded to Gatineau, Devos still led the Tigres in scoring with 73 points (29g, 44a). Following his trade to the Olympiques, Devos played 27 games and scored 18 goals and 41 points. He helped Gatineau reach the 2011 President’s Cup Finals, where they fell in six games to the Saint John Sea Dogs. In 24 post-season games, Devos recorded ten goals and 29 points.

In addition to the Béliveau Trophy, Devos also was a 2010-11 QMJHL Second All-Star Team selection and recipient of the Frank J. Selke Trophy as the QMJHL’s Most Sportsmanlike Player. Devos was also a finalist for the league’s most valuable player award.

Devos played 325 games during his five-year junior career between the Tigres and Olympiques, scoring 112 goals and 294 points with 194 penalty minutes. In 50 career QMJHL playoff games, Devos recorded 22 goals and 58 points.

I'm not the average hockey nut. It took a bit to grow, but when it did it was like a drug flowing in my veins. I am a season ticket holder of the Norfolk Admirals, longtime supporter of the Washington Capitals, and part time supporter of the Anaheim Ducks (It's hard, but it can be done). My blog is a result of the lack of good sources of Admirals information and happenings. Our paper provides very weak coverage and there is only so much the Admirals themselves can do. There are not to many blogs that cover the Admirals, and when they do it is just rehashed information from the club, the AHL. Nine times out of ten the blogger doesn't even live in the area or go to the games. So what do I want to do? Hmm...good question. I would use this as an outlet for getting out information about the Admirals. Not necessarily the information provided by official channels, but news and information from a fans point of view. Hopefully this is something I can accomplish. I am open to criticism, comments, contributions of infomation for the site. Thank You and Welcome......
