During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Jackman played for Björklöven in the Swedish Allsvenskan.

After parts of five seasons in the NHL, Jackman opted to sign overseas with EC Red Bull Salzburg in Austria in the summer of 2007. He also played Leksand of Allsvenskan, Biel of Swiss-A. In 2010 he accepted special invitation to play for Utah Grizzlies(ECHL) prior to join HC Slovan Bratislava in Slovak Extraliga. In December 5, 2010, Jackman signed 2-year deal with HC Slovan Bratislava, but since the club struggle financially, Jackman asked to wave-off the contract.
