NORFOLK, VA. — The Norfolk Admirals, proud members of the ECHL, announced they have signed defenseman Eric Williams to a contract for the upcoming season.
Williams becomes the first defenseman to ink a contract with the Admirals for the 2021-22 season.
The 26-year-old native of Newmarket, Ontario signed with Norfolk for the 2020-21 season but was free to go elsewhere after the Admirals opted out of the season. Williams ending up playing in 23 games with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits and Indy Fuel.
