Today's game has been officially cancelled due to bad weather. More information on ticketing to come.

UPDATE: 2:00 pm
Today's game is still on but will be evaluated again at 2:20 pm.

UPDATE: 12:00 pm
The Saint John Sea Dogs and Moncton Wildcats hockey clubs will make a decision at 2:00 pm today whether or not to go ahead with today's game at Harbour Station.

"Today's game IS STILL ON, we will evaluate again at 2PM TODAY, but as on now, get your food bank items ready, lets win the Rivalry Cup," was the message on the Sea Dogs' official Facebook page.

News 88.9 Meteorologist Richard Zurawski says we can expect the weather to pick back up by mid-Saturday morning bringing up to 20 centimetres of snow and winds gusting up to 120 kilometres an hour when all is said and done.

"The worst is yet to come. The storm is going to re-develop and that's part of the problem.... the first pass of the storm went through overnight, however it's going to double-back and move back into the Maritimes."Zurawski said.

Environment Canada has issued winter storm and wind warnings for the Greater Saint John area, with winter storm, wind, and storm surge warnings for the Moncton region.

If the game is postponed, it will become the first ever Sea Dogs home game to be rescheduled. Last season, a Saint John game in Halifax was rescheduled due to the same kind of weather. Another game in 2007-08 was rescheduled to a power outage.

The Halifax Mooseheads game in Bathurst scheduled for 7:00 pm tonight has already been postponed due to extreme weather conditions.

Station Nation will have the latest.
