Goodbye, Import Goaltenders

As reported over the past few weeks, European goaltenders in the Canadian Hockey League will soon become a thing of the past.
The move has to do with Canada’s recent struggles to produce quality goaltenders, as the Toronto Star explains. Buzzing The Net also has a solid read on the controversial decision.

Switzerland native Robert Mayer is the only Euro goaltender the Sea Dogs have ever had. He played two seasons in Saint John from 2007-2009 and has been playing in the Montreal Canadiens farm system ever since.

Of note, the 2013 CHL Import Draft is on Wednesday, July 3. The Sea Dogs will select ninth overall.
