Matt Lane Recalled to AHL-Rochester

Rookie Forward is Fourth on Jackals in Scoring

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 forward Matt Lane has been recalled from loan by the Amerks. 

Lane, 22, is fourth on the Jackals with 24 points (11g, 13a) in 45 games during his rookie season. He began the season with Rochester, but he hasn't missed a game with the Jackals since he was reassigned to Elmira in late November. The Rochester native has three points in his last two games and five points (2g, 3a) in the last six prior to his recall. 

With the Jackals, the Boston University product posted his first professional goal (Dec. 4 vs. Brampton), his first multi-goal game (Jan. 14 vs. Reading) and his first career overtime game-winning goal as part of a career-high three-point game (Jan. 20 vs. Manchester).

In nine games with the Americans to begin the season, Lane picked up one assist. 

In an unrelated move, the Jackals released forward Robert Lepine and goalie Greg Dodds from their Amateur Tryouts earlier this week.
