Jay Rosehill Returns To The Norfolk Admirals

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.

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......
