Defenseman Musser Returns To The Admirals

Norfolk, Va - Norfolk Admirals Professional Hockey Club, proud affiliates of the Carolina Hurricanes and Chicago Wolves, announced on Thursday afternoon that defenseman Carson Musser has signed a contract with the club for the 2022-23 season.

Musser, 25, becomes the second defenseman to sign with Norfolk for the upcoming season. Elijah Vilio became the first defenseman to sign on June 30.

The Grand Rapids, MI native signed his first professional contact with Norfolk on March 22 and quickly showed his defensive prowess on the blueline. Musser played in seven games with the Admirals and picked up his first professional point on April 2 against Jacksonville.

"I am so glad to have Carson back on the team this year," said Admirals General Manager and Head Coach Rod Taylor. "He's a solid defenseman, great with body positioning, and excellent at defending with his stick. Overall, he's just a great kid. I'm really looking forward to working with him this upcoming season."

The 6-1, 195-pound defenseman completed his collegiate career in 2021-22 with Long Island University (NCAA). As a graduate student, Musser was an assistant captain for the Sharks and posted 11 points in 31 games (4g, 7a), along with 69 blocked shots which led all defensemen.

Prior to his season with Long Island, Musser played four years at Bowling Green State University (NCAA). In 104 games with the Falcons, he registered 19 points (2g, 17a) and had a +5 rating.
