SAINT JOHN – Brett Malone is a Saint John Sea Dog.
The Sea Dogs announced this morning that they had acquired the forward from the Shawinigan Cataractes in exchange for a 2014 10th round Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Entry Draft pick. Malone was picked up by Shawinigan yesterday after being placed on waivers by the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.
Malone was a third-round pick of the Moncton Wildcats in 2010. He played in 44 games with Moncton in 2010-11, 33 in 2011-12, and seven this season, recording a total of four goals and five assists. He was then acquired by the Screaming Eagles where he had three goals in 25 games.
The 18-year old Miramichi native is listed at 5-foot-11, 189-pounds.
This is the only deal the Sea Dogs have made on trade deadline day 2013 so far. The deadline is at 1pm Atlantic time.
