Oilers recall Jacques
Jacques, the Oilers third choice (2nd round) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, returns to the Oilers after being assigned to the Penguins on November 19th. He scored at more than a point-per-game pace while in the minors, netting 2-4-6 with 7 penalty minutes in five games for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He was scoreless in four games with the Oilers this season.
The 64", 217 pound forward played seven games with Edmonton in 2005-06, but spent the majority of that season with the AHLs Hamilton Bulldogs, where he scored 24-19-43 with 131 PIM in 65 games. After four seasons with Baie-Comeau of the QMJHL between 2001-02 and 2004-05, Jacques made his professional debut with the Edmonton Road Runners of the AHL in 2004-05. He was scoreless with five penalty minutes with the Oilers AHL affiliate.
