It’s been a rough few weeks for Jurij Repe.
The Saint John Sea Dogs rookie defenseman hasn’t played a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game since November 25 where he suffered a minor concussion. He has since recovered and has joined the Slovenian junior team for the Division 1 World Junior Hockey Championships. But today, Repe tweeted some more bad news.
Broken hand :/ #injury

Slovenia beat France 5-0 today in Division 1 - Group A action for their first win of the tournament. They play Austria tomorrow and Norway on Sunday.
This obviously isn’t great news for the Sea Dogs defense. Benjamin Hade hasn’t played since October 6 due to injury. They’ll be missing Olivier LeBlanc over New Year’s for the World Under-17 Challenge. And it’s hard to say what’ll happen once the trading period opens.
Repe has two goals and two assists in 22 games with Saint John this season.
