If you look at any of the Admirals all-time top ten lists, there’s a good chance you’ll notice a pattern – the name Victor Gervais appears on almost all of them.
Gervais spent parts of seven seasons with the Hampton Roads Admirals from 1990-91 to 1997-98. In 239 career games with the Blue and Gold, the Prince George, British Columbia native scored 151 goals and 282 assists for 433 points. He ranks second all-time in points, third all-time in goals and first all-time in assists in Admirals history. His 1.81 points-per-game in an Admirals jersey rank second all-time among players who have appeared in more than five games.
Gervais helped the Admirals to the 1992 Riley Cup Championship in his second campaign with the club, scoring six goals and 14 points on the run to the title. His 118 points during the 1992-93 season remain the most ever in a single season in an Admirals jersey and also remains among the top 15 best offensive seasons in ECHL history. In 1998, Gervais led Hampton Roads in playoff scoring on their improbable run to the Kelly Cup, netting seven goals and 11 assists in 19 games.
Gervais tallied eight career hat tricks as an Admiral – the second-most ever in team history. He also ranks seventh in games played in ECHL Admirals history and trails only Rod Taylor with his seven seasons in an Admirals jersey. Gervais also scored the first goal in ECHL All-Star Game history in Wheeling, West Virginia in 1993.
