Sea Dogs Notebook

The QMJHL website has a video featuring RJ Broadhead and Sam Cosentino previewing tonight’s Saint John Sea Dogs – Edmonton Oil Kings game. Game time is 8pm on Sportsnet.

News 88.9 also has a brief preview on their website. In it, Stanislav Galiev is quoted as saying, "we're going to play our best game. Everyone is hungry for a win so it's going to be a good game for us.”

Buzzing The Net has an article on Sea Dogs defenseman Jason Seed. What do the Dogs need to do tonight against Edmonton?

"We need to play our game in our next contest against the Edmonton Oil Kings [on Monday],” he said. “We were not very good against London, took some costly penalties and did not compete hard enough. We will be better. "

Seed played in all 17 of Saint John’s playoff games, recording a goal and three assists.

Open Ice Hockey has an article on Sea Dogs captain Jonathan Huberdeau. He admits he must be more disciplined than on Saturday when he collected six minutes in penalties.

“You don’t want to take penalties like that one,” he said about his third period roughing penalties. “I have to be more disciplined and play my game more. Shy away a bit from the rough stuff.”

Huberdeau had 18 penalty minutes in 15 playoff games and 50 in 37 regular season contests.

Prince Charles was in Saint John today while Sir Charles – the nickname many Saint John fans have given Charlie Coyle on Twitter – gets ready for another Memorial Cup game. He talked about the nickname with Sunaya Sapurji of Yahoo! Sports.

"I think this is the first one, Sir Charles," said Coyle about the nickname. "I guess we'll stick with that one... some of the guys call me Chuck here, so that's a little easier to get used to, but that's my dad's name. People call my dad Chuck, so that was weird to me at first."

Coyle also talks about his decision to leave Boston University and join the Sea Dogs.

Sea Dogs Styles finally has an online store. They are even selling 2012 President’s Cup championship stuff on it. Check the store out here.

CSN Washington has an article on Stanislav Galiev who should get plenty of attention at Capitals training camp this year.

“With Alexander Semin likely to test unrestricted free agency and Evgeny Kuznetsov committed to at least another season in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League, who might fill the void as a goal-scoring right wing for the Capitals next season,” asks Chuck Gormley.

“How about 20-year-old prospect Stanislav Galiev?”

Gormley writes that Galiev would have a $660,556 cap hit if he made the Caps next season

The Canadian Press also has an article on Charlie Coyle. In it, Sea Dogs head coach Gerard Gallant says he spent "a year and a half" trying to get Coyle. 

"The perfect storm hit just before the world juniors (in December),” said Gallant. “The kid was going to be an NHL player and he was going to sign a contract and he felt the best thing to do was join the Sea Dogs, with some of our talented players. He knew Zach Phillips, so things fell into place for us."

Buzzing The Net has a great article on the friendship between Stanislav Galiev and Tomas Jurco.

"We can help each other," said Jurco. "We can talk after the game and stuff. We're on the same line so we just talk about what we have to do better on the ice and it's pretty good when there's two Euros who speak almost the same language."

Lastly, via Sportsnet, here’s the strange goal Jonathan Huberdeau scored during the second period of Saturday’s game against London.
