Recapping The Trading Period

As expected, the Saint John Sea Dogs were quite active during the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s trading period.

General Manager Mike Kelly did what rebuilding teams are supposed to do – trade away older players in exchange for assets that will help the team in the seasons to come.

Saint John's biggest deals saw them trade away long-time players Kevin Gagne, Ryan Tesink, and Stephen MacAulay. Their biggest acquisition was probably getting their first-round pick back for this year’s draft, a pick that could possibly be in the top five.

Here’s a recap of what the Sea Dogs did (not including the players who were released or the players who rejoined the club):

IN
Michael Abbott
Jeremy Doucet
Brett Malone
2013 1st rounder (RIM)
2013 1st rounder (SNB)
2013 4th rounder (HAL)
2013 6th rounder (RIM)
2014 2nd rounder (HAL)
2014 4th rounder (SHE)
2014 4th rounder (CAP)

OUT
Kevin Gagne
Ryan Tesink
Aidan Kelly
Stephen MacAulay
Benjamin Hade
2014 6th rounder
2014 10th rounder
2015 4th rounder

So that’s what went down.

The team also brought back 20-year old players Ian Saab and Maxime Villemaire which should make for an interesting second half.
