Admirals Reassign Leavold

The Norfolk Admirals have reassigned forward Brady Leavold to the Victoria Salmon Kings of the ECHL. Leavold, who was signed by the Salmon Kings last spring for the ECHL playoff run after he finished his junior career with the Kelowna Rockets, was signed to an AHL contract with Norfolk on August 7th, but the Salmon Kings held his ECHL rights after qualifying the forward on July 1st. Leavold earned an AHL contract after first being invited to Tampa's prospect camp this summer in Victoria. Leavold then participated on the Lightning's Traverse City prospect tournament team before reporting to Norfolk's training camp. Leavold's reassignment to Victoria comes just hours after the Lightning placed forward Jason Ward on waivers.

Leavold, 20, is a 5-foot-11, 190-pound forward from Port Coquitlam, British Columbia. He appeared in each of Norfolk's first four games of the season, going scoreless with two penalty minutes.
