WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Move over, Jimmy Roy. Make room, Lee Goren. Yo, Steve Brule, shove over. Here comes Jason Jaffray.Already a name to remember among the best of the Manitoba Moose, Jason Jaffray, who was a two-time ECHL All-Star Game starter and 2003 ECHL Rookie of the Year, can now head to the front of the line when it comes to owners of big nights. Jaffray’s three-goal performance in Game 2 of this Calder Cup final has to rank as the most clutch and most important in franchise history.
There have been big moments before and even a few that bordered on large. But nothing prior to Jaffray’s hat trick in a 3-1 win over the Hershey Bears could be labelled as huge. And huge this was. The series is now tied 1-1 with Game 3 set for Saturday night in Pennsylvania.
