In a recent announcement today, it was revealed that Tomas Vomacka, Norfolk Admirals goaltender, is returning to his home, as he signed a one-year deal with HC Dynamo Pardubice B in the Czechia’s 1. Liga, a second-tier pro league.

During the 2022-23 season, Tomas Vomacka manned the Admirals’ net for 34 games. He achieved a 0.868 save percentage and a 4.36 goals against average (GAA), resulting in 8 wins and 22 losses. Impressively, Vomacka emerged as Norfolk’s primary goalie last year, leading the team in games played.

As the Admirals bid farewell to their main starting goaltender, they continue to actively seek a new NHL affiliate. This signing could potentially bring an influx of new goaltending talent to the Admirals.

While we wish the best of luck to Vomacka, the Admirals stand at the cusp of an opportunity, ready to embrace a new goaltender—perhaps from their imminent affiliate?

  1. Vomacka belonged to the Nashville Predators, and was in the last year of his contract with them. Over his contract term he never really developed to make that step to the next level. Plus, we never had control of him, Nashville property, This is a pointless article, and does not have anything to do with Carolina if they decide to come back or not.

    1. Agreed. Norfolk only played him because they HAD to not because they wanted to. He clearly rods out bud finally year in his contract and chose to enjoy his time in Norfolk and the surrounding area rather than focus on stopping the puck.
