The Walleye acquired forward J.P. LaFontaine in a trade with Elmira on Tuesday.
LaFontaine, a 24-year-old, was acquired for future considerations. The native of Oxford, Mich. has played in 13 games for the Jackals and had five points (goal, 4 assists).

LaFontaine is the nephew of former NHL forward Pat LaFontaine and spent four years at Minnesota State University.
