Sea Dogs Notebook


Sea Dogs Styles now has cases for the iPhone 4/4S. There are two different designs to choose from as you can see above.

The Sea Dogs are back in action tomorrow night at 7pm at Harbour Station against the last-place Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.

Cape Breton has a 12-39-3-5 record and will likely miss the playoffs this year. The Eagles are 2-3-0-1 against the Sea Dogs this season.

Upper-bowl tickets for tomorrow’s game are just $8.00. In support of P.R.O. Kids, donations of Canadian Tire money will be collected at the front doors of Wednesday’s game as well.

Stephen MacAulay and the Halifax Mooseheads clinched first overall in the QMJHL over the weekend, giving them home ice advantage throughout the playoffs.

For MacAulay, it’s his fourth straight regular season title. If that has been done before, there can’t be many players who have done it.

Since joining the Mooseheads, MacAulay has 11 goals and 11 assists in 20 games.

FS Florida had a show focused on Jonathan Huberdeau last week. Here’s a piece of it:

Huberdeau has eight goals and five assists in 18 games this season, placing him second in rookie scoring.

“The Panthers have decided to put Huberdeau on their top line because of his scoring abilities, and he is winning 43.8 percent of his faceoffs,” writes Sportsnet.ca blogger Jeremy Blakely. “At the rate this shortened season is going and the way he is playing, Huberdeau is on pace to score 24 goals, 15 assists, and 39 points to finish his rookie season.”

Is Huberdeau currently the favourite for the Calder Trophy? Panther Parkway takes a look at that question.

Saint John only had 14 shots on goal in Friday’s 6-1 loss to the Mooseheads. That’s a historically low amount. From News 88.9’s Sea Dogs blog:

The Sea Dogs established a new team mark for fewest shots in a game with 14. It broke the previous mark of 15, which happened twice – in Janaury and March of 2006

Saint John is averaging 27.19 shots per game, the fifth lowest average in the league.

Here are highlights from the game if you’re interested.

What’s the latest on the Ryan Tesink situation? No clue. Neither team or the league said anything about it this past week. 

Sportsnet’s Patrick King had a column on the situation last week and we really enjoyed this paragraph:

The Sea Dogs are the QMJHL's bad boys, and it would be open to speculation whether the Armada would have made the same claim had it been any other team. If nothing else, the Sea Dogs' reputation within the league certainly doesn't hurt the Armada's case.

Evil Empire, man. The Sea Dogs really need to have a Star Wars themed game next season.

This was in the Dog Bytes Newsletter on Friday:

If you sign up for a FibreOP bundle before March 20, cheer your team on with FREE playoff tickets and a team jersey! If you already have FibreOP, you still qualify if you add a new FibreOP service to your bundle. And, if FibreOP is not in your neighbourhood yet, but you add another service to a bundle, you could qualify too.

The details are all here (click to enlarge):
So this happened.

  1. They are just getting cases for the old iPhone now? What's the point of that when everyone is getting iPhone 5s and the 5S is about to come out?
