Ducks Announce Affiliation Agreement with Norfolk of the AHL
The Ducks have signed a multi-year affiliation agreement with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL) beginning in the 2012-13 season.
 
“We are excited to be affiliating with the Admirals in a great hockey market such as Norfolk, Virginia,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “We look forward to working with the Norfolk organization and continuing the winning tradition the team has created at Norfolk Scope Arena. We would also like to thank the Syracuse Crunch and its fans for their support over the last two seasons.”
 
Anaheim’s AHL affiliate has combined for a 240-176-25-35 record in 476 games (.567 winning percentage) since the 2005-06 season. The Ducks were most recently affiliated with the Syracuse Crunch from 2010-12, posting a 72-67-8-9 record in 156 games. Syracuse was one of the AHL's most successful teams down the stretch last season, winning 15 of its last 20 games (15-3-1-1) to earn a Calder Cup Playoff berth. From 2005-08, Anaheim was affiliated with the Portland Pirates, who reached Game 7 of the AHL Eastern Conference Finals in two of three seasons (2006 & 2008). The Ducks spent the 2008-09 season affiliated with the Iowa Chops, who posted a 33-33-4-10 record.
 
“We are excited to have the Ducks as our partner and look for a terrific long-term relationship," said Admirals President Ken Young. “The Ducks have the nucleus of an excellent club in Anaheim and have a great system of prospects that we will see develop in Norfolk. We look forward to continued top-level hockey in Hampton Roads as Anaheim's top affiliate.”
 
Since 2005-06, numerous players who made their NHL debuts with Anaheim also played for the club’s AHL affiliate. Those current Ducks players include forwards Ryan Getzlaf (Portland), Corey Perry (Portland), Bobby Ryan (Portland/Iowa), Matt Beleskey (Iowa/Syracuse) and Nick Bonino (Syracuse), and goaltender Jonas Hiller (Portland).
 
The Norfolk Admirals were admitted to the AHL as an expansion franchise for the 2000-01 season and won their first Calder Cup championship in 2012. Prior to their agreement with Anaheim, the Admirals were affiliated with the Chicago Blackhawks from 2000-07 and Tampa Bay Lightning from 2007-12. Prior to joining the AHL, the Admirals were a member of the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) from 1989-00, winning three league championships (1991, 1992, 1998).
