Norfolk’s new parent club is in Music City
At a event Thursday night, the Norfolk Admirals announced that they had entered into an affiliation agreement with the Nashville Predators. After two seasons in the ECHL with the Oilers, new ownership sought out a different affiliation. Nashville had previously been affiliated with the Cincinnati Cyclones. In a twist of fate, the Norfolk Admirals will now have the Milwaukee Admirals as their AHL affiliate.
The team also announced that the new logo will be announced sometime in the next month and new uniforms the month after. Terms of the affiliation were not announced at the time of this posting.
