Tonight’s Saint John Sea Dogs road game in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island has been postponed “due to hazardous weather conditions and the accumulation of snow in eastern New Brunswick,” states a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League release.

The game will be made up on Wednesday, March 16 at 7:00 pm at the Charlottetown Civic Centre.

The cancellation isn’t much of a surprise as the Wildcats – Titan game scheduled to take place tonight at the Moncton Coliseum was postponed yesterday due to Snowmageddon 2010 hitting New Brunswick.

The Confederation Bridge is also experiencing some delays. From their website:

For user safety, the Confederation Bridge has restricted certain classes of vehicles from crossing until the current high wind situation changes. Restricted classes include automobiles towing trailers, motorcycles, highsided vehicles including trucks, tractor trailers, recreational vehicles, and buses.
Tickets for tonight’s game can be used for the rescheduled game on the 16th of March.

Both teams are missing some of their best players tonight as Saint John’s Tomas Jurco and Simon Despres and PEI’s Andrej Nestrasil are currently participating in the World Junior Hockey Championships in Buffalo, New York. Despres’ Canadians and Nestrasil’s Czechs meet each other tonight.

The rescheduled game creates a busy March for the Sea Dogs as they now play eight games in 17-days.

The Sea Dogs’ next game is Thursday at the KC Irving Regional Centre in Bathurst.
