Rumor has it … Seen On The Ice At Camp wearing # 3…….Something that will sure make most of us Admiral fans happy. Former Admiral Jay Rosehill returns to the Norfolk Admirals. Most likely a training camp tryout, but lets hope he does well and earns a roster spot for the season. The former Toronto Maple Leaf / Marlies winger last saw action with Norfolk during the 2008-09 season before being traded to the Toronto organization.
Jay Rosehill was selected in the 7th round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft (227th overall) by the Tampa Bay Lightning. He continued to play for the Olds Grizzlys of the AJHL in the 2003-04 season. The next season, he played for University of Minnesota Duluth of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. For most of the next four
seasons, he was placed in the Tampa Bay Lightning farm system, playing for both Johnstown Chiefs of the ECHL and the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League in 2005-06 and 2006-07. Due to new Tampa Bay farm system affiliations, he played for Mississippi Sea Wolves of the ECHL and the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League in 2007-08 & 2008-09. On March 10, 2009, his was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs organization for future considerations.
Rosehill last faced the Admirals as a member of the Toronto Marlies Calder Cup finals team that fell to our own Calder Cup Champion Admirals. It will be nice to see Jay in an Admirals jersey once more. He is not the type of player to back down from anyone and would bring a physical presence to the ice. Rosehill and the Admirals kick of the pre-season this Saturday, October 6, at the Norfolk Scope. Tickets are still available. Get your today.
