Bandits' Norris on AHL 2nd team


Dwayne Norris, captain and inspirational leader of the Bandits since joining the team last Nov. 3, has won American Hockey League second-team honors.

In 62 games for Baltimore, Norris scored 31 goals and registered 55 assists for a team-leading 86 points.

A first-team selection last season for Cornwall, Norris was signed by the parent Mighty Ducks of Anaheim out of the International Hockey League, where he had seven goals and 16 assists in 14 games for the Los Angeles Ice Dogs.

Among Norris' 20 multiple-point games this season were three five-point and three four-point games. The native of St. John's, Newfoundland, is 26 and played in the AHL All-Star Game the past two seasons.

Bandits tonight

Opponent: Rochester Americans

Site: War Memorial Arena, Rochester, N.Y.

Time: 7: 35

Radio: WITH (1230 AM), WAMD (970 AM)

Outlook: The 80-game regular season ends with the Bandits hoping to salvage a little out of their season-long misadventure against the Amerks. Beaten all three games in Baltimore and outscored, 14-7, Baltimore has split a pair in upstate New York. But it took a 56-save shutout by goalie Mike O'Neill to accomplish the feat. O'Neill will sit this one out to rest for the playoffs, with backup Mike Torchia getting the start.
