NORFOLK, Va. – The Norfolk Admirals today signed forward Bryan Brutlag ("BROOT-lahg") to a Professional Tryout Contract, Admirals General Manager Julien BriseBois announced.
Brutlag, 5-foot-11, 189-pounds, is currently tied for the team lead in scoring with the ECHL's Gwinnett Gladiators. The pro rookie has appeared in all 62 games for the Gladiators this season, posting 18 goals and 43 points with 30 penalty minutes and a plus-5 rating. Brutlag is tied for fourth in rookie scoring in the ECHL. He also ranks second in goals and fourth in assists overall with the Gladiators. Brutlag had tallied points in each of Gwinnett's last seven games (5g, 5a) before signing with Norfolk.
Prior to tuning pro with the Gladiators this season, Brutlag appeared in 151 career collegiate games with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (R.P.I.) Engineers, posting 21 goals and 60 points with 171 penalty minutes. He began his collegiate career as a defenseman before switching to forward full-time prior to his junior season. Brutlag is tied for third all-time in games played in R.P.I. history and missed only three games in his four-year college career.
