The Norfolk Admirals are a minor professional ice hockey team in the American Hockey League, and affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Admirals play in Norfolk, Virginiamarker, USA at the Norfolk Scopemarker.

History

The Admirals were admitted to the American Hockey League as an expansion franchise for the 2000–01 season. Norfolk is one of two franchises in the AHL with the Admirals, sharing the nickname with the Milwaukee Admirals. The Milwaukee franchise transferred from the defunct International Hockey League, and were allowed to keep their previous moniker.

Norfolk's geographically closest rivals are the AHL's Pennsylvaniamarker-based teams: the Hershey Bears, Philadelphia Phantoms and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Although they're not regulars on each other's schedules, the Worcester Sharks can be considered rivals since majority of the meetings have been intense, fight-filled games. The Admirals have two mascots. A dog named Salty and dog/rabbit hybrid named Hat Trick.

On March 19, 2007, the Chicago Blackhawks announced that their affiliation with the Admirals would end after the 2006–2007 season. On March 29, 2007, the Tampa Bay Lightning officially announced the Admirals as their new affiliate.
