Elmira hosts the rival Reading Royals at First Arena for the fourth of fifteen meetings this season and the second of seven on home ice. These two East Division foes have met at First Arena on October 24, which turned out to be an action-packed nail-biter. The Jackals erased a three-goal deficit in the final 10 minutes of the third period and forced overtime when Brayden Irwin scored on a penalty shot with 53 seconds remaining. The Royals came out victorious in the shootout, but the Jackals battled back and earned a hard-fought point. The Jackals traveled to Reading the next night and fell 5-1 in the Royals' home opener. But, Elmira bounced back in the weekend finale and defeated the Royals at Santander Arena 3-1. The all-time series has been tight between these two rivals, with the Jackals holding a 45-44-11 advantage.

 

Taylor Stefishen is currently third in the league among rookies with 14 points (four goals, 10 assists) in 13 games this season. Stefishen's 10 helpers are tops among first-year players and leads the Jackals. He also leads the team with three power-play goals and a plus-7 rating.
