Norfolk, Va. - The Norfolk Admirals, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes and American Hockey League's Chicago Wolves, announced that forward Cody Milan has signed a contract with the club for the 2022-23 season.

Milan signs with the Admirals for a second straight season after posting career-high numbers in 2021-22. 

The 26-year-old began his professional career in 2019-20 with the Cincinnati Cyclones, posting 29 points (8g-21a) to rank eighth on the team. 

Milan was traded to the Admirals on June 12, 2020, as a result of a future considerations trade dating back to February 2020. He ultimately signed a deal with Norfolk a few weeks later but the Admirals opted out of the season due to the COVID-19 policy.

On July 21, 2021, Milan signed with the Admirals and proceeded to post career-high numbers in goals (16), assists (35) and points (51). On Oct. 22, Milan scored the game-winning goal in overtime against the Reading Royals to kick off the season. After being sidelined for a month with an injury, he returned to action against Orlando on Nov. 27 and had two consecutive multi-point nights.

Before turning pro in 2019, Milan was a member of Michigan State University for four seasons. He played in a grand total of 122 games with the Spartans, posting 53 points (16g-37a). Milan was awarded the Bill Burgess Outstanding Senior Award in 2018-19 and was also an alternate captain that season.
