The Norfolk Admirals are losing their second player in six days as Keaton Jameson is on his way to Glasgow, Scotland to play for the Glasgow Clan in the Elite Ice Hockey League.

“I’m really happy to announce my commitment to the team for next season, and I’ve heard a number of good things about the city and the organisation.”

The Admirals hold the rights of Jameson and can re-sign him should he choose to return as he was added to their 2024-25 protected list.

The 26-year-old spent the first three seasons in ECHL, where he spent time with the Fort Wayne Komets, Utah Grizzlies, and Admirals. Through those three seasons, Jameson played 147 games, tallying 51 assists and 79 points. Jameson collected his first professional point on February 20, 2022, against the Kalamazoo Wings in his fourth game with the Komets.

Prior to his pro career, Jameson played three seasons at the University of Manitoba in USports, rather than the four years he attended due to the 2020-21 season being canceled because of COVID-19. In those three seasons, Jameson played 74 games, scoring seven goals and 37 assists.

Jameson will have a familiar face with him in Glasgow as their assistant coach, Mike Sirant, was the head coach of the University of Manitoba while Jameson was attending.

“Keats was my captain in Manitoiba,” he said. “He’s a great person, a solid character and very much a team guy who is very coachable.”

Glasglow Clan struggled last season, finishing in 10th place in the 10-team league, with a 10-24-9-11 record. Despite being dead last, Glasgow ranked fourth in the league for goals scored with 175 but was terrible at keeping the puck out of their net as they allowed 234 goals against. Jameson will look to help the Clan make it back to the playoffs for the third time in four seasons after they missed out this past season.

During the 2023-24 season, the Admirals had three members of the team, between players and coaches, who have a connection with the Clan: Andrew McLean (2022-23), Mathieu Roy (2019-20, 2021-22 and 2022-23), and assistant coach Joel Rumpel (2018-19).
