As a community owned team, staying active in the community is extremely important to all of us at the Jackals. During September, our staff was able to participate in local events and to meet many of you, our amazing fans. We hope you enjoyed seeing us around in September, and we look forward to seeing you in October, as hockey is less than two weeks away!
