Norfolk, VA  —  The Norfolk Admirals announced today they have acquired forward Roman Ammirato from the Greenville Swamp Rabbits in exchange for cash considerations. In a corresponding move, the Admirals have placed Christian Horn and Brandon Rumble on the injured reserve. 

Ammirato, 5’9, 165lbs, joins the Admirals after playing in four games with the Swamp Rabbits to start the 2019-20 season. He scored two goals and had three assists in those games. 

“We are very happy to have acquired Roman today from Greenville,” said Admirals assistant coach Ryan McGinnis. “Roman is someone we have had our eye on since the start of the season. He is a player that will bring compete, which is exactly what this team and city stand for. We are looking forward to his contributions here in Norfolk."
