It appears defensemen David Mosher and Justin McDonald have been called up by the Saint John Sea Dogs. From the Twitter:
Heading to Saint John tomorrow for a few games
— David Mosher (@dmosher9) December 26, 2012
Saint John tomorrow #seadogs
— Justin McDonald (@Donald4Mc) December 26, 2012
Mosher has played in one game with Saint John this season. He was a +1 in Saint John’s 5-1 win in Moncton on September 30. He had two assists in three pre-season games.
The 18-year old Halifax native has three assists in 24 games with the Maritime Junior Hockey League’s Truro Bearcats. He had seven points in 37 games with Truro last year.
Meanwhile, the 18-year old McDonald has nine goals and 15 assists in 24 games with the MHL’s Dieppe Commandos. He had a goal in three pre-season games with the Sea Dogs.
It’s no surprise to see two defensemen brought up. It’s unclear if David Weckworth or Jurij Repe will be healthy when the break ends. Olivier LeBlanc is away with Team Quebec at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. Jason Seed, who is still on the team’s roster, is playing with the MHL’s Summerside Western Capitals. Veteran d-man Kevin Gagne was traded last week.
So, that leaves Steven Duda, Ryan Kelly, Benjamin Hade, Pierre Durepos, the newly acquired Michael Abbott, Mosher, and McDonald on the team’s backend.
The Sea Dogs return to action on Saturday when they host the Acadie-Bathurst Titan at 7pm.
