NORFOLK, VA. - The Norfolk Admirals announced a pair of roster moves involving two forwards on Tuesday.
First, the team has signed forward Lukas Lofquist to a standard ECHL contract. Lofquist, who will turn 21 next week, had a dozen points through 23 games thus far this season with the Missouri Mavericks. The Swedish forward becomes the second player added to the Norfolk roster from Missouri thus far this season, joining defenseman Dmitrii Sergeev.
In addition, the Columbus Blue Jackets have reassigned forward Dante Salituro. Salituro, who is just 20 years old, is expected to return to junior hockey as an overage forward. #9 had a goal and an assist in five games with Norfolk since being loaned in December.
The team will depart Wednesday for a three game road trip over the extended weekend, beginning with Greenville on Friday and Saturday and concluding in Atlanta on Monday. You can catch all three games on ECHL.TV, as well as on 102.1 FM The Tide, the official radio station of the Norfolk Admirals.
Following the trip the team returns home for a five game home-stand against the Adirondack Thunder, Wheeling Nailers and Manchester Monarchs. Tickets for all games are on sale now on Ticketmaster.com and at the Norfolk Scope Arena box office.
Unused tickets from this past Saturday's snow game against Elmira can be exchanged at the Scope box office for any of the five remaining home games this month.
