Norfolk, Va. - The Norfolk Admirals as we know them have played their last game in Hampton Roads. The American Hockey League affiliated team is moving to California to be closer to its new NHL affiliate, the San Diego Gulls.
But that doesn't mean hockey is gone for good here in Norfolk. An East Coast Hockey League affiliate will be moving to the area. They will still carry the same name and have the same logo, but they are a AA level team.
Friday night fans celebrated the last AHL Admirals game at the Scope.
