Aspenlind ReturnsMarch 31, 2009 - ECHL (ECHL) Elmira Jackals
Aspenlind skated in 43 games for the Jackals this season before being loaned to the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League. At the time of his departure, the ECHL All-Star was leading the Jackals in scoring with 36 points, 14 goals and 22 assists. Aspenlind also registered a plus seven rating and 72 minutes in penalties for Elmira.
After representing the Jackals in the 2009 ECHL All-Star game, the Langley, British Columbia product got the call to join Lake Erie. In 27 games played for the Monsters, Aspenlind netted one goal and added one assist while picking up 39 minutes in penalties.
"It's a tremendous bonus getting your All-Star forward back, especially someone as physical as Josh." Said Jackals Head Coach Steve Martinson. "With two big games left for us, it's a first class move by Lake Erie General Manager David Oliver to return a player that he would have otherwise kept until the end of the Lake Erie season." Martinson added.
