Jason Kasdorf Called Up by Rochester

Elmira Fire Department's Eddie Palmieri to Serve as Jackals Emergency Backup

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 goaltender Jason Kasdorf has been recalled to the Amerks from the Jackals. 

Elmira Fire Department's Eddie Palmieri will serve as the Jackals emergency back up goalie for Andy Iles for tonight's game. Tonight is the Battle of the Badges and the Elmira Fire Department is playing Elmira Police Department before the Jackals host the Everblades. 

Kasdorf, 24, has appeared in 20 games for the Jackals, posting a 2-14-1 record with a 4.18 goals-against average and an .873 save percentage. A sixth-round selection (157th overall) of the Winnipeg Jets in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, Kasdorf was acquired by the Buffalo Sabres and made his NHL debut with the Sabres last spring.        

The Winnipeg, Manitoba native has appeared in three games with the Amerks this season. He earned his first professional victory with the Jackals Nov. 27 against the Manchester Monarchs.
