NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk Admirals General Manager Julien BriseBois today announced the players on the team’s Clear Day Roster.

The AHL’s championship trophy is named after Hockey Hall of Famer Frank Calder, who served as the first president of the National Hockey League from 1917-43. During the 1920s, Calder was instrumental in guiding professional hockey into the mainstream of the United States’ major cities, including New York, Boston, Chicago and Detroit, while also helping in the formation of the American Hockey League.
In operation since 1936, the AHL is the top development league for the players, coaches, officials, managers, executives and broadcasters for the National Hockey League and its 30 teams. More than 85 percent of today’s NHL players are American Hockey League graduates – including former Calder Cup champions such as Mike Richards, Jeff Carter, Mikhail Grabovski, Carey Price, Bryan Little, Michal Neuvirth and Bobby Butler – and more than 100 honored members of the Hockey Hall of Fame came through the AHL.
