Made In The Maritimes

SAINT JOHN – When looking at the Saint John Sea Dogs’ training camp roster, one thing really sticks out – the amount of Maritime players trying to earn a spot on the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team.

46 players (which includes the five who will be reporting at a later date) are on this year’s roster and 30 of them are from are from the Maritimes and another from Newfoundland.

Here is a breakdown of where the training camp attendees are from.
New Brunswick – 11
Nova Scotia – 11
Quebec – 9
Prince Edward Island – 8
Ontario – 3
Newfoundland & Labrador – 1
British Columbia – 1
Russia – 1
Slovakia – 1 
Total – 46
It’s also interesting to note that all of the players the team has listed as free agent invitees are from New Brunswick, Nova Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, Ontario, or British Columbia.

Is this Maritime representation significant at all? I have no clue.

24 hours until the pre-season.
