Admirals Training Camp Is Just Around The Corner

While the NHL is currently under a player lockout and the NHL season is in jeopardy. The AHL is still business as usual and the teams are getting ready for the season opener in mid October. The Norfolk Admirals are preparing for training camp. One big problem right now is that there is no ice down at Scope. Boards and glass yes, but no ice. That should be changing early next week as the ice crew will be busy laying the first sheet for the new season. In the meantime the players will have some time to skate over at Chilled Ponds starting on Friday. The Chilled Ponds online schedule has the team on the ice everyday from Friday until next Wednesday. I am not sure if this is actually part of the formal training camp process or if it just gives the team a chance to get acquainted and get their legs warmed up for camp which is scheduled to officially open on Sept 28.

Yes …. Hockey is in the air.

Chilled Ponds Schedule


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......
