“We are honored to have achieved one of the highest recognitions within the ECHL front offices”, said Admirals President Trent Ferguson, “The 26 teams in this league are all filled with incredible executives, and being considered at the top while being one of the smallest, and most efficient staffs, is a testament to the hard work and passion that each one of them carries for the success of the Norfolk Admirals” Said Ferguson.
The award was presented at the 2019 ECHL Hockey Summer Meetings, presented by FEVO, at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
