Jets, Moose renew affiliation with ECHL’s Norfolk Admirals

The Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose have extended their partnership with a minor pro hockey team based in Norfolk, Va.

The clubs announced the ongoing affiliation with the Norfolk Admirals of the ECHL on Tuesday.

The Admirals, who are set to begin their second season as the ECHL affiliate of the Jets and Moose, have given ice time to Jets draft picks, including Dmitry Kuzmin and Thomas Milic — who appeared for both Norfolk and Manitoba last year, as did prospects Thomas Caron, Carson Golder, Simon Kubicek, Mark Liwiski and Oskari Salminen.
