Sea Dogs Notebook

Via Facebook, "the Saint John Sea Dogs are throwing their support behind the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation's 'The Give' fundraiser."

Tonight at 8pm in Quebec City, the Halifax Mooseheads will look to force a Game 7 with a victory over the Remparts. If a Game 7 is required, it would be played tomorrow night at Pepsi Colisee.

The Moose have won two straight entering tonight’s Game 6. According to Metro Halifax, only three times in the history of the QMJHL has a team come back from a 3-0 series deficit and won.

Chicoutimi/Shawinigan and Rimouski/Blainville-Boisbriand will play their Game 7s tomorrow night. The lowest seed that moves on will play Saint John in the next round.

Two former Sea Dogs were among the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins team award winners on Saturday night.

Simon Despes was named the team’s Rookie of the Year. Despres recorded five goals and 10 assists in 44 American Hockey League games this season. He also registered a goal and three assists in 18 games with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Former Sea Dogs captain Alex Grant was named the Most Improved Player. Grant registered 10 goals and 27 assists in 61 games in his first full AHL season. Grant spent most of last year in the East Coast Hockey League.

Grant and Despres could probably help Pittsburgh’s defense right now. Brutal.

Sea Dogs forward Zack Phillips was a guest on The Pipeline Show this weekend. The audio can be found here.

Blainville-Boisbriand and Val-d’Or will host the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League portion of the 2012 Subway Super Series. The schedule:

Game 1 – Monday November 5 at Blainville-Boisbriand, QC
Game 2 – Wednesday November 7 at Val-d’Or, QC
