Yesterday the Jackals added defenseman Justin DaCoasta to the fold. He signed with the Jackals after playing last season in Austria for Szekeshfehervar. A fourth-year pro, DaCosta last played in the ECHL for the Stockton Thunder in 2009-10. As a rookie he potted 24 points (3G, 21A) in 42 games. He last played in North America with the Central Hockey League's Allen Americans in 2010-11. There, under head coach Dwight Mullins, he helped the Americans to 47 wins and the conference regular season championship.
