Affiliate Update

The Jackets have three affiliates, the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League, the Elmira Jackals of the ECHL (a shared affiliation with the Ottawa Senators) and the Youngstown Steelhounds of the Central Hockey League. The "Hounds are the class of the CHL, being amongst the top teams in the league since the start of the season. The Jackals started the season off slowly, but have been very hot lately, surging to the top of the standings. The Crunch however, have struggled from the start of the season, searching for consistency, and battling injuries to key players.
