The Jackals are 6-5-0 all-time against the Everblades after falling 6-3 here on Wednesday night. The Jackals are looking to rebound after dropping back-to-back games for the first time this season while Florida is trying to earn back-to-back home wins for the first time since October 12 and 13.
Tonight will mark the return of a pair of familiar Jackals to the line up. Forward Louie Caporusso has been reassigned to the club by the Ottawa Senators from Binghamton. In two games this season Caporusso has earned a goal and an assist for the Jackals while last year he racked up 16 goals and 16 assists in 29 games. He has one goal and two assists in two career games against the Everblades. Also, making his season debut, is defenseman Benjamin Dieude-Fauvel. The native of Bordeaux, France has been activated off of the IR and will see his first game action since April 20, 2012. He had 14 points in 62 games with the Jackals last season, his third as a pro. Prior to that he accumulated 47 points over 120 games with the Central Hockey League's Laredo Bucks.
