NORFOLK, VA. – The Norfolk Admirals announced three roster moves on Friday, involving one defenseman and two goaltenders.
First, the Bakersfield Condors declared the reassignment of defenseman Mikael Tam to Norfolk this morning. Tam, 25, was recalled on January 15th and played just one game in his tenure out west. Prior to being called up, the fifth year pro played a dozen games with the Admirals this season and recorded 14 points over the course of those games.

In correspondence, goaltender Steven Summerhays has been traded to the South Carolina Stingrays. Through six games played his record was 2-3 with the club, including a 3.36 goals against average and a .893 save percentage.
Tam (#22) and Desrosiers (#29) will be available to play this evening as the Admirals take on the Adirondack Thunder in Glens Falls, beginning at 7 P.M.
