Jean-Francois Jacques is hoping that he'll be able to revive his NHL career.

Jacques' injury history has complicated his career. Still, he's playing with the AHL San Antonio Rampage in the hope that he'll be able to earn a permanent spot with the Panthers when the lockout ends. "(The Panthers) told my agent they felt they had to get bigger — lots of guys on one-ways in Florida (if the NHL lockout ever ends) — but I had one last year in Anaheim and they tossed me," he said. "Maybe I could toss somebody else."

Florida has signed Jean-Francois Jacques to a one-year, two-way pact.

He skated in just six games with Anaheim last season, while putting up 12 penalty minutes. Jacques had 40 points and 95 minutes in the sin bin over 65 contests with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch. "Jacques is a big and physical player with NHL experience that we are happy to have signed," said GM Dale Tallon. "He is a hard working and tough to play against forward that adds further depth to our club."

Jean-Francois Jacques has been sent to the minors on Tuesday.

This comes just a day after Jacques received a three-game suspension by the NHL. This move does not allow Jacques to escape punishment. The next time the Ducks call Jacques up, he'll have to resume serving his three-game suspension before he'll be allowed to play in an NHL contest.

The three-game suspension levied against Ducks forward Jean-Francois Jacques is fully endorsed by Anaheim general manager Bob Murray.

"J.F. hit a player that was vulnerable after shooting the puck and he needs to be more aware in those situations," Murray said. "We will accept the league's ruling and will move forward." Jacques will have to forfeit $23,780.49 in salary to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.

The NHL has handed Jean-Francois Jacques a three-game suspension for his hit of Columbus' R.J. Umberger.

Jacques is being punished because Umberger's head was the principal point of contact. Jacques also received a five-minute major for elbowing. He'll be eligible to return on January 15th.

Jean-Francois Jacques' hit on Columbus' R.J. Umberger could result in a suspension.

Jacques already received a five minute elbowing major because his elbow appeared to hit high. "I got a pass and I was in a shooting motion," Umberger said. "Clearly defenseless. You can’t hit a guy like that right there, especially directly to the head. It’s a clear hit that they’re trying to get rid of in this league." Jacques has already been suspended once this season, so that will probably factor into the NHL's decision.

The Anaheim Ducks promoted winger J.F. Jacques from the AHL's Syracuse Crunch.

Jacques isn't expected to make much of a fantasy impact, although he is a somewhat decent source of penalty minutes.

The Anaheim Ducks have sent Jean-Francois Jacques back to Syracuse of the AHL.

Jacques was recalled by the Ducks on December 26 after getting 11 goals and 19 points in 20 AHL games. He will get a chance to improve on those stats with his demotion.

Jean-Francois Jacques has been called up by the Anaheim Ducks.

Jacques has 11 goals and 19 points in 20 games this season. He has no fantasy value at this time.

The Anaheim Ducks demoted Jean-Francois Jacques to the AHL after a two-game stint in the NHL.

J-F Jacques has zero points but seven penalty minutes in three games with the Ducks this season. His value is as painfully obvious as his job is as an enforcer. There are plenty of better PIM sources out there, though.

Jean-Francois Jacques has been called up by the Anaheim Ducks.

Jacques has 12 points and 26 penalty minutes in 16 AHL games this season. That being said, we don't think he'll have any fantasy value in standard leagues during this NHL stint.

Jean-Francois Jacques has been sent down to AHL Syracuse.

Jacques has eight points and 15 penalty minutes in 10 AHL games this season. He might get recalled by the Ducks before the campaign is over, but he isn't expected to have any fantasy value.

Jean-Francois Jacques and defenseman Nate Guenin were summoned from the minors by Anaheim on Tuesday.

Jacques hasn't played yet in the NHL this season, while Guenin skated in two games with the Ducks at the beginning of the year.
Wed, Nov 16, 2011 03:35:00 PM

Jean-Francois Jacques has been sent to AHL Syracuse.

The good news is that Jacques has finished serving his five-game NHL suspension, so the next time he gets called up, he'll actually be eligible to play in a game with the Ducks. He has three goals and six points in six AHL games this season.
