Rookie Forward Joins Elmira from AHL-Chicago
The Elmira Jackals, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's Buffalo Sabres and the AHL's Rochester Americans, proudly celebrating our 10th season in the ECHL, announced today that forward Sam Povorozniouk has been loaned to the Jackals by the AHL's Chicago Wolves.
Povorozniouk, 21, has spent parts of his rookie season with the Wolves and the Missouri Mavericks. He hasn't appeared in a game for the Wolves, but in 27 games with the Mavericks, the Northbrook, Illinois native has 18 points (11g, 7a). During his time in Missouri, Povorozniouk was tied for the team lead with 11 goals, including two game-winning goals. He also chipped in with seven power-play points (1g, 6a).
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound forward played his junior hockey in both the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). Last year, Povorozniouk scored a career-high 39 goals and had 62 points for Saint John in his one year in the QMJHL. In 249 career OHL games for the Saginaw Spirit, Kingston Frontenacs and Windsor Spitfires he totaled 121 points (47g, 74a). Povorozniouk also spent one season in the USHL with the Chicago Steel in 2010-11, appearing in 28 games.
In a corresponding transaction, the Jackals have released defenseman Travis Jeke, who appeared in three games for the Jackals.
