"We are thrilled to have Lucas join the Elmira Jackals organization," said Jackals owner Nate Cook. "His drive and determination exemplifies the new image we are committed to on and off the ice."
Bloodoff, 25, joins the Elmira Jackals organization following a successful four-year career at Saint Mary's University in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport ranks.
"I could not be more excited to be part of the Elmira Jackals and the Buffalo Sabres organization," said Bloodoff. "When the opportunity came to sign with Elmira I was immediately excited because it was a team we were hoping to be a part of after I graduated from [Saint Mary's] University in Halifax. I have heard nothing but great things about the Elmira organization and I am very excited to be a part of the family and bring what I can to the team next season."
The Castlegar, BC native recorded 99 points (47 goals, 52 assists) in 109 career games for the Huskies. This past year Bloodoff was labeled the team captain after two seasons with the alternate captain patch on his sweater. He posted a career-high 20 goals, 18 assists and 38 points in the 2012-2013 season. That season Bloodoff was named to the AUS First All-Star Team, the CIS All-Canadian First Team and was awarded the Kelly Trophy as the AUS Most Valuable Player as well as the Senator Joseph A. Sullivan Trophy as the CIS Player of the Year.
Prior to attending Saint Mary's University, Bloodoff notched 124 points (64 goals, 60 assists) and 356 penalty minutes in 259 games as a member of the Kelowna Rockets of the Western Hockey League. Skating alongside his brother Evan, who plays for the Florida Everblades, Bloodoff helped the Rockets win the WHL Championship in 2008-2009.
