Sea Dogs Notebook

Saw this at Cleve’s Source for Sports over the weekend. Looking good, Ovechkin cut-out.

Sea Dogs president Wayne Long was a guest on CBC Radio’s Information Morning last week. He talks about the team’s first quarter of the season, Jonathan Huberdeau/trade deadline, and other things. Listen to that HERE.

Gone Puck Wild does a great job at re-evaluating the trade that brought former Sea Dogs forward Charlie Coyle from the San Jose Sharks to the Minnesota Wild.

“Regardless of where Coyle ends up playing the rest of this season, one thing is certain; the Minnesota Wild have a bright, young star on their hands and while it cost them a great d-man to get him,  the trade that brought Charlie Coyle to Minnesota is one that they’ll be glad they made,” writes Derek Stykalo.  “Not only potentially for this season, but for many more to come.”

Coyle has seven goals and three assists in 14 games with the American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros this season.

A Habs Eyes on the Prize blogger made the trip to Blainville-Boisbriand on Sunday to see the Armada take on the Sea Dogs. They recap their game experience.

“I didn't really count scoring chances or possession, but by eyeballing it and confirming with the shot clock, I'd be comfortable saying that the Armada fired 30 more shots through the course of the game than the Sea Dogs,” Andrew Berkshire. “The teams didn't look so much like they were at the opposite ends of a league's standings, it looked like they belonged in different leagues.”

Well that’s nice to hear.

The Sea Dogs will be out in the community today. From their Facebook page:

It is a big community day for the Sea Dogs! First, #27 Oliver Cooper and #24 MacKenzie Brown will be at McDonalds in the North End from 5 pm - 6 pm signing autographs! 
Also #16 Andreas Tsogkas and #37 Stephen Anderson will be visiting the Shannex complex in Quispamsis tonight from 5:30-6:30 pm! 
Come and meet your Sea Dogs today!

According to the radio station K93, Sea Dogs forward Mackenzie Brown is the male winner of the Tom Longboat Award. According to the station, “the Tom Longboat Awards are handed out annually to outstanding First Nations athletes in each province.”

Brown played with both the Sea Dogs and the MHL’s Woodstock Slammers last season. He has played in just one game with Saint John this year because of a knee injury.

Here’s Marcus Cuomo’s fight from Sunday’s game against the Armada.

The Sea Dogs rookie, who now has three goals and three assists in 20 games, was a topic of discussion in The Telegram last week.

“Marcus Cuomo isn’t a hockey player flush with natural talent, but his work ethic is second to none,” writes Robin Short.

“I’m not sure if Cuomo will play pro when he’s done junior, but scouts will be taking a second look at the hustling 17-year-old from St. John’s — unlike other youngsters who have loads of talent, but instead choose to loaf their way through practice and games.”

According to Jurij Repe, Jurij Repe hurt his shoulder. He tweeted this on Monday:
Repe did not play on Sunday after suffering the injury on Saturday night against Drummondville.
