Rivet Signs With Elmira Jackals

http://www.jackalshockey.com/news/te...elmira-jackals

I'm very surprised that Rivet would sign with an ECHL team. Guy must really love the game.

not sure why he would want this, you would think he could have gotten something in the ahl or overseas..

I could see not wanting to play overseas, but why not play in the AHL? Most teams could use a Brad Lukowich-type that stays in the AHL to "give back" to their fans.

or he likely could have waited and got another shot with a team battling injuries in the nhl or ahl.

MY HOMETOWN TEEEAAAAAM.

I might have to go see him next time I'm back in town

This is probably about conditioning more than anything else.

Correction on No. 1... Pominville got the goal, Rivet had the primary assist. Pominville deflected it just before it went in.

Still an awesome moment though.

many reasons to choose Elmira

-'close' to home, kids get to watch Dad play more hockey
-learn how an independent organization runs/future job opportunities (coach/management)
-teach/coach, while still getting to play
-easier schedule/opponents than AHL.
-beats sitting at home

CoachUSA arena is less than a 2 miles from a wegmans!

Think of how easy it would be to get Muffins before practice!

Agreed. I think we can all agree that the best (not in Buffalo) moment was the 5min PP he gifted us in the last regular season game last year to help us clinch the 7 seed.

Could be he's trying to keep in reasonable game shape while keeping his name out there as available.

Agreed he's lucky he doesn't play the Road Warriors, they'd retire him before he touched the ice.

My guess would be that none of the AHL or NHL clubs in the NY/OH area were willing to take a flyer on him right now - too many age/health questions. He is gonna try to dominate the ECHL to prove he can still play at a higher level & hope for his chance.

You're underestimating the ECHL if you think that.

There's a Weis and a Tops within walking distance of the arena.

Man, by chance I was AT that SJ game. It's still the loudest arena I've ever personally been a part of.

To rehash: it was a big deal to the players since many live in the neighborhood where it happened. It was a big deal to the community since almost everyone involved was a WNYer. The team wanted to win their next game as a way of doing what they could for the area and surprisingly they did.

Pardon my ignorance of the ECHL salary structure; but wouldn't he make more actually working at the Wegmans? Assuming he leveraged his captaincy to a night manager position or the like.
