NORFOLK – The Norfolk Admirals have signed defenseman Ryan Parent (“PAIR-ehnt”) to an American Hockey League Professional Tryout Contract (PTO), Admirals Assistant General Manager Bob Ferguson announced today.

Parent, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound defenseman, is a sixth-year professional with over 100 games of NHL experience. Last season, he appeared in 22 games with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves, posting one goal and six points with 31 penalty minutes and a plus-6 rating. He then recorded an assist in five Calder Cup Playoff games. Parent also represented Canada at the 2011 Spengler Cup tournament in Davos, Switzerland.

A former first-round draft pick, Parent has appeared in 106 career NHL games between the Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks, registering one goal and seven points with 36 penalty minutes. He has also skated in 27 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, helping the Flyers advance to the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals. The Nashville Predators selected Parent in the first round (18th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Parent, a 25-year-old from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, has appeared in 135 career AHL games between the Philadelphia Phantoms, Manitoba Moose and Chicago Wolves, netting four goals and 18 points with 151 penalty minutes and a plus-10 rating. He has also played 15 career Calder Cup Playoff games, helping the Milwaukee Admirals advance to the 2006 Calder Cup Finals.

Prior to turning professional, Parent played 227 games with the OHL’s Guelph Storm, notching 10 goals and 56 points in his junior career. He also helped Team Canada to gold medals at the 2006 and 2007 IIHF World Junior Championships.


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......
