The Jacksonville Icemen, proud affiliate of the NHL Winnipeg Jets and AHL Manitoba Moose, today announced the return of forward Eli Lichtenwald.

“Eli adds a lot of size up the middle at center. He had a great college career but unfortunately, got hurt last season,” said Coach Jason Christie. “It’s a big summer for him to get stronger and we’re excited to have him back.”

The 6-foot-6, 235-pound forward began his rookie season in Pensacola with the Ice Flyers (Southern Professional Hockey League) before joining the Icemen midway through the club’s inaugural season. The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native skated in 35 games for Jacksonville recording 8 points (3G, 5A). Prior to turning pro, Lichtenwald spent four seasons with Union College where he collected 44 points (24G, 20A) in 129 games.
