***Elmira Jackals Are Ducks' New ECHL Affiliate***

THE TELETYPE:
In a press conference today at the Buffalo Wild Wings at Horseheads on Route 64, the Elmira Jackals of the announced that they are the new ECHL partner of the Syracuse Crunch and the Anaheim Ducks.  According to Lindsay Kramer of the Crunch Hockey Blog, the Jackals are also working toward finalizing a deal with the Binghamton Senators and parent club Ottawa, who were the club's affiliates last season.  That would make the Jackals a dual affiliate team next season.

After partnering with Syracuse, Anaheim had to cut ties with its previous ECHL team in Bakersfield in order to find a club closer to the Crunch.  The Elmira Jackals certainly fit the bill, having served as the Crunch affiliate in 2007-08 and sitting a mere two hour drive from the War Memorial in Syracuse.

Editor's Note:  According to the team press release, after the press conference, wings were 45-cents.  Awesome.
