Norfolk, VA – The Norfolk Admirals, ECHL affiliate of the Arizona Coyotes, have signed defenseman Zane Schartz for the 2018-19 season the team announced on Thursday afternoon.

Schartz joined the Admirals after wrapping up his collegiate career with Liberty University (ACHA). In four games with Norfolk last season the defenseman netted his first professional point, an assist, and added seven penalty minutes.

“It was such a blessing how everything led me to Norfolk at the end of last season,” said Schartz. “I’m excited to be back this year and hope to make an impact on and off the ice.”

In his final season at Liberty University Schartz ranked 6th among all ACHA skaters with 59 points (23g, 36a) in 35 games. Over three seasons with the Flames, the Plano, TX native recorded 129 points (48g, 81a).

Schartz is the fourth player signed by the Admirals this off-season, joining Ty Reichenbach, Max Cook, Roberts Locans and Domenic Alberga.
