Thanks to the generosity of their fans, the Norfolk Admirals were able to raise $34,660 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in their annual MDA Jersey Auction, presented by PAPCO, on Mar. 10.
Following Norfolk’s game against the Binghamton Senators, the team auctioned off the players’ game-worn jerseys to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Hampton Roads.
In two games that weekend, the Admirals donned special black third jerseys with the word "Admirals" running diagonally across the front. Following the second game, the jerseys were auctioned off to the highest bidders at center ice.
The highest winning bid went for the jersey of #3 David Koci, who missed the Mar. 10 game while making his NHL debut that evening with the Chicago Blackhawks in Phoenix. His jersey sold for $3,550.
In total, 24 jerseys (including a team-autographed sweater) and a team-autographed stick were auctioned to benefit the MDA.
