Jackals Add Depth Up Front

The Elmira Jackals announced on Thursday that they have signed second-year forward Kevin DeVergilio and rookie forward Dustin Cameron to contracts for the 2010-11 season.

The Jackals are the ECHL affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks and Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League and the Syracuse Crunch and Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League.

DeVergilio spent time with two winning teams in his rookie season of 2009-2010. He started the year with the AHL’s Texas Stars, eventual Calder Cup finalists, recording an assist in 13 games. With the Steelheads, DeVergilio totaled 18 goals and 20 assists for 38 points in 48 games as Idaho won the ECHL’s 2010 Brabham Cup with a 46-17-2-5 record. In 15 postseason games, DeVergilio had three goals and seven assists as the Steelheads qualified for the 2010 Kelly Cup Finals.

Cameron recently finished a lengthy Canadian-junior career that spanned six seasons. The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native began his junior play with the WHL’s Saskatoon Blades, skating with the team from early 2005 before being traded in the beginning portion of the 2007-2008 season to the Prince Albert Raiders of the same league.
