Sea Dogs Notebook

Via the very cool website Frozen Faceoff, here’s what centre ice at Harbour Station looks like. Check out their site to see centre ice logos from all over the QMJHL and other leagues.

The Canadian Hockey League Awards Showcase will be held later today in Saskatoon. A full list of nominees can be found here.

No current Sea Dog is nominated for an award, but former Dog Kevin Gagne is up for the Post Defenceman of the Year Award. He was named the QMJHL Defenceman of the Year a few months ago.

Gagne played four-and-a-half seasons with Saint John before being traded to the Rimouski Oceanic in December. In 62 games split between the Sea Dogs and Oceanic, the 21-year old registered 17 goals and 54 assists.

The Anaheim Ducks prospect played in five games with the AHL’s Norfolk Admirals after the Oceanic were eliminated from the post-season. He had one assist.

Stephen MacAulay’s junior hockey career comes to an end tomorrow night as the Halifax Mooseheads take on the Portland Winterhawks in the 2013 Memorial Cup Final. Game time is 8pm on Sportsnet.

Some articles on the former Sea Dog:

Tomas Jurco and the Grand Rapids Griffins opened up the AHL Western Conference Final with a 2-1 win over the Oklahoma City Barons last night.

Jurco had an assist, one shot, and a +1 rating in the Game 1 victory. The former Sea Dog is having a solid post-season with four goals and five assists in 12 games.

The Eastern Conference Final between the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and Syracuse Crunch begins tonight.
