With that said, the Elmira Jackals released goaltender Shane Connelly (pictured) from his tryout agreement and waived former Princeton Tigers forward Mark Magnowski. Elmira has a split affiliation with the Ducks and Senators. The Ducks have already assigned Marco Cousineau to Elmira, and with Robin Lehner having been sent to Binghamton from Ottawa — a likely precursor to Barry Brust being sent to the Jackals from Bingo, by the way — Connelly became the odd man out.
Just 23 years old, Connelly made his pro debut with Johnstown and South Carolina last year after a solid four-year collegiate career at Wisconsin.
As for Magnowski, he had a brief two-game stint with Victoria after playing his college hockey at Princeton.
