In what could be regarded as a development year with all the incoming young players, the Norfolk Admirals are off to a respectable 20-13-1-5 start. Norfolk stood to lose quite a few valuable players to the Anaheim Ducks this season, and with players like Hampus Lindholm, Sami Vatanen, Emerson Etem, Frederik Andersen, and Patrick Maroon all spending considerable time in the NHL in 2013-14 that fear became a reality.
The Anaheim Ducks' brass has done an excellent job maintaining depth throughout their prospect pool in recent years. They have done incredibly well in the past few drafts, adding players who can score, but also players capable of playing a responsible two-way game.
The AHL's Western Conference was home to the Calder Cup champions in 2012-13, but that league's Eastern Conference should offer up at least a couple of legitimate contenders in the 2013-14 campaign. And, with the Western Conference already previewed, Hockey's Future will now take a look some of the teams and prospects to take note of in the AHL's Eastern Conference for this season that is now underway.
