Munro has appeared in 16 games for the Admirals and has a record of 8-6-1 with 1 shutout, a 2.90 goals against average, and a .894 save percentage.

Munro was originally the Blackhawks' 1st round choice (29th overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. The Blackhawks re-signed Munro as a free agent on February 18, 2004. He made his NHL debut in the 2003-04 season appearing in 7 games posting a record of 1-5-1 with a 3.66 goals against average.
Barinka was recalled on December 12th and appeared in 2 games before suffering a mild concussion at Nashville on December 15th. He had missed the last 6 games before being re-assigned to Norfolk today.
