ADMIRALS ANNOUNCE AFFILIATION WITH ARIZONA COYOTESNorfolk Signs One-Year Agreement with NHL Club

June 25, 2018

Norfolk, VA – The Norfolk Admirals announced on Monday afternoon that the team has signed a one-year affiliation agreement with the Arizona Coyotes of the NHL.

“We’re really excited to begin a new chapter and partnership with the Coyotes organization,” said Admirals owner Ardon Wiener. “From the on-ice to the front office, Arizona is a top-notch organization and this partnership will help us continue to build on the tradition that has been created here over the last 29 seasons.”

Norfolk will also be affiliated with the AHL’s Tucson Roadrunners, who finished the 2017-18 regular season by winning the AHL’s Pacific Division.

“With both the Coyotes’ AHL (Tucson) and ECHL (Fort Wayne) affiliates finishing the regular season ranked in the top two in their respective divisions and advancing past the first round of the playoffs, Arizona has a great stable of prospects. We’re looking forward to helping them continue to develop, while winning games,” said president and CRO Trent Ferguson. “Coach Ftorek laid the ground work last season and we’re looking forward to building on that success with the Coyotes and Roadrunners help this year.”

During the 2017-18 season Norfolk had three players (Grant Besse, TJ Melancon, Ty Reichenbach) sign a PTO with the Roadrunners.

“We are excited to partner with the Norfolk Admirals as our new ECHL affiliate,” said Coyotes’ Assistant General Manager Steve Sullivan. “The Admirals are a first-class organization with Owner Ardon Wiener and Head Coach Robbie Ftorek. Having had Robbie as my first professional head coach, I fully trust his ability to develop our prospects in Norfolk. We look forward to a strong partnership.”

The Coyotes play in the NHL’s Pacific Division, and are preparing for the franchise’s 22nd season in Arizona. Known as the Phoenix Coyotes until the 2014-15 season, Arizona plays its home games at Gila River Arena located in Glendale, Arizona.

Norfolk will open the 2018-19 season on October 13 at home against the Wheeling Nailers. Full and partial season tickets are now available by visiting NorfolkAdmirals.com or calling the Admirals office at (757) 640-1212.
