NORFOLK, Va. - The Norfolk Admirals announced that they have signed defenseman Andrew McLean and forward Justin Young to contracts for the 2023-24 season. 

McLean, 28, joins the Admirals after splitting time last season with the Orlando Solar Bears and Elite Ice Hockey League's Glasgow Clan. After starting the season with Orlando to start the year, he then joined Glasgow and proceeded to post 19 points (5g-14a) in 38 games. During the 2020-21 season, he played in 38 games with the Knoxville Ice Bears of the SPHL, leading all Ice Bears' defensemen with 17 points (4g-13a). For his efforts, McLean was named to the SPHL All-Rookie Team.

Prior to turning pro, McLean played four seasons at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. He was named to the WIAC All-Conference Team in 2019-20 and won the National Championship the year prior.

Young, 25, played his first full season as a professional last year with the Allen Americans, recording seven points (1g-6a) in 51 regular-season games. He went on to add three points in 10 postseason games. 

In his senior season at American International College, Young was second on the team in points (31), assists (19), and plus/minus (+18). He also finished third on the team in goals (12). In his four years, Young was a member of two conference championship teams.
