Press release below says it all. Kevin Quick has been assigned to the Everblades. Don’t know if it’s because they have no room for him here, if other D-men are playing better, or if it’s because he is coming off of an injury. I just hope he does well down there and gets in some playing time. I am sure we will need him in the future.

Norfolk Admirals Press Release:

NORFOLK, Va. – The Norfolk Admirals have assigned defensemen Kevin Quick to the Florida Everblades of the ECHL, Admirals General Manager Julien Brisebois announced today.

Quick, 23, a 6-foot, 190-pound defenseman born in Buffalo, New York, has spent the majority of the last five seasons with the Admirals. In 11 games with Norfolk this season, Quick has posted two assists, two penalty minutes and a plus-3 rating.

Quick established career highs in assists and points last season, posting 15 assists in 45 games with the Admirals. He also made his Calder Cup Playoff debut, playing two games with two penalty minutes. In 170 career AHL games, Quick has recorded one goal and 34 points with 26 penalty minutes.

Quick has appeared in six career NHL games – all with the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 2008-09 season – posting one assist. A third-round draft pick (78th overall) by the Lightning during the 2006 draft, Quick originally signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Tampa Bay on June 2, 2008.

Quick has appeared in 18 career ECHL regular season games – all with the Augusta Lynx during the 2008-09 season. He posted two goals and six points with ten penalty minutes in those games. He also appeared in nine Kelly Cup Playoff games with the Elmira Jackals in 2009, posting one assist.

Before joining the Admirals during the 2007-08 season, Quick played in 21 games at the University of Michigan, where he notched two goals and four points with 12 penalty minutes.

The Admirals return to the ice at Norfolk Scope Arena tomorrow and Saturday nights against the Connecticut Whale. The puck drops tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 7:15 p.m. as Norfolk closes out a five-game homestand.

Saturday night’s contest against the Whale will be the fifth-annual Pink in the Rink Night to Benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

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......
