(Norfolk Admirals release)

Today, Norfolk Admirals General Manager Claude Loiselle announced that defensemen Brett Angel and Jay Rosehill and left wings Brandon Elliott and Radek Smolenak have been assigned to the Mississippi Sea Wolves (ECHL).

Rosehill, 6’4” and 215 pounds, appeared in three games for the Admirals going scoreless with 11 penalty minutes. Smolenak, 6’3” and 180 pounds, appeared in two games for the Admirals going scoreless with two penalty minutes. Smolenak was the Lightning's top forward in Traverse City, Michigan during the September prospects tournament, drawing praise from Lightning General Manager Jay Feaster, among others. Angel, 6’6” and 229 pounds, and Elliot, 6’4” and 225 pounds, had not appeared in a game with Norfolk. The Sea Wolves kick off their 2007-08 season on Friday when they visit the Florida Everblades.

Hrdel

I'm surprised Hrdel is sticking over Smolenak.

Production

Hrdel has one goal in 4 games while Smolenak has no points in 2 games. Little surprised by Smolenak. I thought after Traverse City and a pretty good camp, he would have come out of the gate stronger. I guess he will get better minutes at Mississippi to get his game in gear. I think we will see Smolenak in Norfolk again this year.
