Dogs Make Roster Moves

The Saint John Sea Dogs announced a few rosters movetoday.

The team announced that forwards Colin Campbell and Brock Morrison along with defenseman Rory Craddock are no longer on their active roster. Morrison and Campbell have both been reassigned to their junior ‘A’ clubs while Craddock has gone home to rehabilitate an injury.

Morrison, selected by the Sea Dogs in the eighth round of the 2010 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Entry Draft, recorded a pair of goals and an assist in four games with the Dogs this year. He announced earlier this on week on Twitter that he had been returned to the Maritime Junior Hockey League’s Yarmouth Mariners.

The 18-year old led Saint John in pre-season goal scoring with four markers in five contests.

Campbell, also drafted in 2010, had two assists in four games with Saint John. Like Morrison, he has already returned to Yarmouth to join the MHL’s Mariners.

The Sea Dogs signed Craddock as a free agent earlier this month. He was a -1 and had two penalty minutes in two games before getting injured. According to the team release, the Oshawa, Ont. native “has returned home indefinitely in order to rehabilitate an injury” and there is no timetable for his return.

All three players remain Sea Dogs property. 

With these moves and the return of several National Hockey League campers, the Sea Dogs’ roster is beginning to look a lot more normal. Only Nathan Beaulieu and Jonathan Huberdeau have yet to return from NHL training camps.

Stanislav Galiev, Pierre Durepos, Mathieu Corbeil, and Zack Phillips all returned from NHL camps over the weekend. Tomas Jurco, Stephen MacAulay and Ryan Tesink have returned as well and are expected to play for the team this week in Quebec.

  1. I don't understand the reference:

    Saint John visits the St. John’s Fog Devils Montreal Junior Blainville-Boisbriand Armada on Wednesday at 8pm AST.

  2. The former Fog Devils have made more moves than Ex-Lax since the Seadogs and Devils entered the league together.

  3. The Armada were once the Montreal Junior who were once the St. John's Fog Devils...
