Tough Month Ahead For Sea Dogs

The Saint John Sea Dogs have a busy month ahead of them.

The Sea Dogs will play 11 games this month. Eight of those games will be played on the road which includes five games played in Quebec.

Here’s a look at the schedule:

November 2 – at Cape Breton
November 4 – vs Shawinigan
November 9 – at Sherbrooke
November 10 – at Drummondville
November 11 – at Blainville-Boisbriand
November 16 – at Cape Breton
November 18 – at Bathurst
November 24 – vs Cape Breton
November 25 – vs Baie-Comeau
November 28 – at Rouyn-Noranda
November 29 – at Val-d’Or

That’s a lot of games. That’s a lot of road games. But when you break it down, it’s probably not as bad as it could have been. Of the nine different teams the Sea Dogs will play in November, six of them are currently in the lower half of the QMJHL standings.

A few storylines to watch for include Shawinigan’s first meeting with Saint John since the Memorial Cup, the Sea Dogs travelling to Sherbrooke for the first time, three games against Cape Breton, and a rematch with the Baie-Comeau Drakkar following the Ryan Tesink suspension.

Looking ahead, the Sea Dogs have home heavy December schedule with just three road games.
