For the Reporter

Seattle Thunderbirds defenseman Shea Theodore has joined the Norfolk (Va.) Admirals of the American Hockey League, general manager Russ Farwell announced today.

The Admirals are the top affiliate of the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks selected Theodore in the first round, 26th overall, of the 2013 NHL Draft. He signed a three-year, entry level contract with the Ducks on Sept. 25.

Theodore, a Western Conference All-Star this season, led the T-Birds and all WHL defensemen in scoring with 79 points on 22 goals and 57 assists.

Theodore set a team record for career goals by a defenseman with 45, passing Deron Quint who had 44 goals with the T-Birds (1993-95).

In 215 career games over three seasons, Theodore distributed 119 assists, finishing with 164 points.

Theodore is third in team history for career points and assists by a defenseman, behind Craig Channell and Thomas Hickey.
