Jackals Make Roster Moves

The Elmira Jackals have had forward Tim Spencer recalled by their AHL affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, have loaned defenseman R.J. Anderson to the AHL’s Lake Erie Monsters, have traded goaltender Shane Connelly to the South Carolina Stingrays in exchange for financial considerations and that goaltender Mike Brodeur has been re-assigned to the club by their NHL affiliate, the Ottawa Senators, from their AHL affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, the team announced on Thursday.

 

Spencer has played in two games this season with the Jackals, recording an assist along with 23 penalty minutes.

Anderson notched his first assist of the season in Elmira’s 4-1 win at Toledo on Wednesday and has played in six games this season with the Jackals.

Connelly spent the majority of 2009-2010 with the Stingrays, playing in 26 games with the club.

 

Brodeur is in his second season with the B-Sens and played in Binghamton’s season-opening game on Oct. 8 but left the game due to an injury suffered late in the contest and has not played since. He made 27 saves on 28 shots in the Senators 5-1 win that night against Adirondack.

In 2009-2010, Brodeur played in 36 games with Binghamton, going 13-13-2 with an .899 save percentage, a 3.06 goals-against average, and two shutouts. The Calgary, Alberta native made his NHL debut last season, going 3-0 in three starts with Ottawa with a .966 save percentage and a 1.00 goals-against average and garnered a shutout in his second NHL start on Jan. 14, stopping 32 New York Rangers’ shots in a 2-0 Senators victory.
