Former Kelly Cup Champion Marquardt Signs With Norfolk

NORFOLK, VA.— The Norfolk Admirals, proud members of the ECHL, announced on Thursday they have officially signed veteran forward Matt Marquardt to a contract for the upcoming 2020-21 season.

Marquardt, 33, makes his return to the United States after spending the last two years with the Dundee Stars of the EIHL. He made his presence known quickly in Dundee as he registered 46 points in 59 games in 2018-19. Last season, he was named Team Captain and Player-Assistant Coach, pulling in 44 points in 48 games.

The North Bay, ONT product last played in the United States in 2015-16 with the Florida Everblades, where he was Team Captain and third on the team in scoring (15g, 30a). Marquardt has played in 244 career ECHL games to-date with four teams, including a Kelly Cup championship in 2011-12 with Florida alongside current Admirals General Manager and Assistant Coach, Ryan McGinnis.

In addition to his experience in the ECHL, Marquardt is no stranger to the AHL level as he's played in 268 career games with 65 total points. The 6’3, 231-pound forward was originally drafted in the seventh round by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2006 NHL Draft.

The Admirals roster now consists of seven forwards, five defenseman and one goaltender. (*Veteran*)
