Norfolk, VA - Clinton native and former Utica College Pioneers captain Gregg Burmaster will be playing professional hockey full-time in the 2019-2020 season after he signed a deal with the ECHL's Norfolk Admirals, announced Wednesday.

Burmaster suited up in four games in the ECHL with the Fort Wayne Komets last season following the completion of UC's year.

The 6'0, 185 lb. forward lead the Pioneers last year with 46 points in 29 games and in two years at Utica College posted 72 points in 82 career games.

He's the second member of the 2018-19 Pioneers team to join an ECHL team this summer after defenseman Zach Borsoi signed with the Adirondack Thunder on July 25.
