Syroczynski back to Norfolk

The Norfolk Admirals giveth, and the Admirals taketh away.

Right wing Matt Syroczynski's return to the Komets sure was short-lived.

He was recalled to Norfolk of the American Hockey League, just two days after the team had sent him down to Fort Wayne. In the interim, he tallied a goal and an assist in a 4-2 loss to the Port Huron Icehawks on Wednesday night.

Syroczynski has already spent 18 games with Norfolk, tallying four goals and six points.

It's unknown how long he'll be with the Admirals this time.

With the Komets, Syroczynski has five goals and eight points in five games.
