The wait is finally over.
A month-and-a-half after unveiling them, the Saint John Sea Dogs will finally wear their new third jerseys tomorrow night at Harbour Station. The Sea Dogs host the Gatineau Olympiques at 7pm.
The Dogs have worn other jerseys in the past. They wore Saint John Mooseheads sweaters during a game in the 2008-09 season. Then in 2010-11, they wore Saint John Flames jerseys to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the Calder Cup Championship. But tomorrow night, the Sea Dogs will wear something that was made just for them and something that will be worn numerous times.
The team’s third jersey features a new, alternate logo that is similar to the Saint John Flames’ dragon logo. On the shoulder there is a “SJ” patch much like what was worn on the St. John’s Fog Devils sweaters back in the day.
The jerseys have been on-sale since they were unveiled way back on August 17. The revamped Sea Dogs Styles store is also selling t-shirts, hats, and pucks with the new logo on it.
Tomorrow has also been designated SPCA/Animal Rescue League Night. The SPCA/ARL is looking for donations and have provided a list of items that would be helpful to their cause:
- Canned Cat Food
- Animal Bedding Pellets - To use for Cat Litter
- Peanut Butter - For the Dogs' Kongs
- Cheez Whiz- For the Dogs' Kongs
- Cat Collars
- Martingale Collars for the Dogs’
- High Quality Dog Treats:
- Dried Chicken Strips (Costco)
- Tartar Busters
- Pigs Ears
These items are part of their “wish list” and will be collected at the door.
After hosting Gatineau tomorrow night, the Sea Dogs will travel to Moncton on Sunday for Game 2 of the 2012-13 Brunswick News Rivalry Cup.
