Ahead of the Milwaukee Admirals road trip to Cleveland they have made a roster move. Joonas Lyytinen has been reassigned to the Norfolk Admirals (ECHL). At this moment it is likely that the Finnish defenseman will only be down for the duration of the road trip. That would mean Lyytinen logging up to three games as Norfolk work a three-in-three on home ice starting Thursday night.
Lyytinen made his North American pro debut earlier this season in the ECHL with Norfolk. He scored a power-play goal on his debut and only played one further game before being recalled back to the AHL. For Milwaukee, Lyytinen has suited up three times and only has a minor penalty for hooking to his name.
In additional Norfolk news: Angelo Miceli was traded to the Atlanta Gladiators in exchange for Thomas Frazee, Chase Witala and Patrick D’Amico. Norfolk also included Brady Vail in the trade. Miceli was signed to an AHL contract by Milwaukee following his acquisition by Norfolk over the off-season. Miceli is still contracted to Milwaukee (AHL). And the AHL Transactions description for the move through Milwaukee is that he has been loaned to Atlanta (ECHL).
