Admirals Sign Forward Bryan Brutlag to Tryout

NORFOLK, Va. – The Norfolk Admirals today signed forward Bryan Brutlag (“BROOT-lahg”) to a Professional Tryout Contract, Admirals General Manager Julien BriseBois announced.

Brutlag, 5-foot-11, 189-pounds, is currently tied for the team lead in scoring with the ECHL’s Gwinnett Gladiators. The pro rookie has appeared in all 62 games for the Gladiators this season, posting 18 goals and 43 points with 30 penalty minutes and a plus-5 rating. Brutlag is tied for fourth in rookie scoring in the ECHL. He also ranks second in goals and fourth in assists overall with the Gladiators. Brutlag had tallied points in each of Gwinnett’s last seven games (5g, 5a) before signing with Norfolk.

Prior to tuning pro with the Gladiators this season, Brutlag appeared in 151 career collegiate games with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (R.P.I.) Engineers, posting 21 goals and 60 points with 171 penalty minutes. He began his collegiate career as a defenseman before switching to forward full-time prior to his junior season. Brutlag is tied for third all-time in games played in R.P.I. history and missed only three games in his four-year college career.


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......
