rebound control is a feature I started in July and abandoned because, well, I don’t have an excuse. let’s tie up loose stuff from this week.
Peter Holland comes back
The biggest news in Norfolk hockey this week-outside of tomorrow’s home opener-is the announcement of C Peter Holland being reassigned to the Admirals. Holland had been a healthy scratch for all three Anaheim Ducks games, and was a candidate to come down as soon as Ads alum Emerson Etem healthy again. Last year with the Ads, he scored 19+20=39 points for Norfolk, 7 more than DSP. He’ll likely center one of the top two lines on Friday, with Rickard Rakell taking the other.
Ads alum Hampus Lindholm makes NHL debut
Norfolk got its first NHL debut of the season, when D-man Hampus Lindholm made his debut for the Ducks against the Winnipeg Jets. He played just over 18 minutes for Anaheim while putting up excellent on-ice stats in the win.
Norfolk sends Mike Little and Norm Ezekiel to ECHL
With a numbers crunch, the Ads have to make some room. They’ve sent Mike Little to the Florida Everblades and Norm Ezekiel to Utah. Both players will probably get preferred call-ups in case of injury.
I’m writing about twitter because why not?
First up, Stefan Noesen.
He made this tweet (I screencapped it):
Many fans thought he meant he was talking about the Ottawa Senators, who were down 3-0 to the LA Kings at the time. He had to clear it up because sports fans are often times wrong about stuff:
To everyone that was not for the senators game! I apologize for anyone who thought that’s what it was about!

He’s a 20-year-old kid. Let him have his emo/Drake moments. They’re gonna happen. Also he’ll drop a #bestfans at some point.
The Admirals home opener is tomorrow, October 11th at 7:30, against the B-Sens. Come down and support your team!
