- The league announced on Monday that the 2013-14 season will start on September 12, shortening the ridiculously long training camps teams had last year. The schedule will remain 68 games in length.
- The Sea Dogs host the Shawinigan Cataractes tomorrow night at Harbour Station. Saint John is 0-1-1-0 against the Cataractes this season. If the Dogs lose tomorrow we can assume some kind of curse was put on them following the Memorial Cup semi-final loss.
- According to the Sea Dogs pocket schedule, Friday’s home game against the Moncton Wildcats is “Hawaiian Night.”
- The Wildcats will be without one of the best players in the CHL on Friday. Dmitrij Jaskin, the ‘Cats leading scorer, has been suspended one-game for a check to the head in Monday’s loss to Rimouski.
- Sam Cosentino on the Moncton Coliseum: “A new downtown rink in Moncton would be great. The Coliseum is starting to show its age. Not to mention, it’s the hottest broadcasts booth I’ve ever worked in.” Bless you, Sam Cosentino.
- Former Sea Dogs forward Charlie Coyle is still up with the Minnesota Wild. He has yet to record a point in his NHL career. He has six shots, two penalty minutes, and a -1 rating.
- Another big game for Jonathan Huberdeau last night. The former Sea Dogs captain scored twice during the second period in the Florida Panthers 6-5 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals. He was named second star of the game, sandwiched between Nicholas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin. Huberdeau now has five goals and three assists in 12 games.
