On Tuesday September 15th, the Norfolk Admirals announced the signing of Canadian left-winger Eric Selleck. A former NHL’er and AHL’er, Selleck is a veteran forward and has the grit and experience the Admirals need. Yes, the team is considered young, but a veteran presence who has been at the highest level of hockey can significantly help the hockey club.
Selleck began his pro career in 2010-11 with the American Hockey League. He did so with the Rochester Americans, AHL affiliate of the Buffalo Sabres. During the last two seasons, Selleck was playing in Slovakia for HC Banska Bystrica and the Bratislava Capitals.
Playing in 488 games, Selleck recorded 114 points while also adding 1,272 penalty minutes. The forward was an assistant captain for the Belleville Senators and Tucson Roadrunners. He made his NHL debut in 2012-13 with the Florida Panthers. In his first NHL game, the left-handed shooter scored an assist for one point.
