Jackals Make Swap With Fuel

Jackals Acquire Defenseman Matt Stanisz From Indy

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 they have acquired defenseman Matt Stanisz from the Indy Fuel in exchange for Jacob Poe and the rights to Miles Koules.        

Stanisz, 26, is in his second professional season and has appeared in 35 games this season with the Fuel, posting 10 points (4g, 6a) from the blue line. Two of his 10 points this season have come on the power play. He has been involved in one fight this season with Indy after dropping the gloves four times last year.

The lefty shooting defenseman spent his rookie season with the Florida Everblades in 2015-16, skating in 41 games and compiling 18 points (2g, 16a) and a +8 rating. He also accrued 64 penalty minutes.           

The Burlington, Ontario native played his college hockey at Carleton Universtiy from 2011 to 2015, totaling 94 games played. He chipped in with 74 points (10g, 64a) for the Ravens.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound defenseman played four full seasons in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) prior to attending Carleton University. In 256 games between the Barrie Colts and Owen Sound Attack, Stanisz had 88 points (15g, 73a) and a +78 rating. He was a member of the 2010-11 Owen Sound Attack team that won the OHL Championship and participated in the 2011 Memorial Cup.

To acquire Stanisz, the Jackals sent Poe and Koules, who were previously acquired in a deal with the Tulsa Oilers, to the Fuel.
