Sea Dogs Notebook

If you haven’t heard, Sea Dogs Training Camp kicks off this week at Harbour Station. The on-ice schedule for the first week of camp was released on Friday. The public is welcome to attend.

"We are very excited about the talent we have. We expect to get back to a high level sooner than most people think," Long said.

"We are very happy with the new draftees. We selected six in the first three rounds. We also have other young guys like Matt Highmore and Spencer Smallman back and ready to go. We realize that we have to be patient."

CAMP OPENINGS also has a list of when each QMJHL team begins their training camp. Here’s when each Maritime team kicks things off:

Acadie-Bathurst Titan August 12 K.C. Irving Regional Centre
Cape Breton Screaming Eagles August 12 Country Arena
Charlottetown Islanders August 12 Pownal Sports Centre
Halifax Mooseheads August 14 Cole Harbour Place
Moncton Wildcats August 12 RedBall Internet Centre
Saint John Sea Dogs August 14, Harbour Station

Sea Dogs play-by-play man Tim Roszell was on The Pipeline Show on Saturday. He talked about a bit of everything and is definitely worth a listen. Check that out HERE.

PHILLIPS has named former Sea Dogs forward Zack Phillips (pictured) the third best prospect in the Minnesota Wild system.

“With a year of pro hockey under his belt, Phillips, who had 80 points (30 goals) in 60 games for the Saint John Sea Dogs in his final junior season in 2011-12, is ready to make a bigger impact, whether it be in Minnesota or for the Iowa Wild, the club's new AHL affiliate,” writes Brian Compton.

Phillips had eight goals and 19 assists in 71 games with the AHL's Houston Aeros last season.

SIR CHARLES also has a big time article on Charlie Coyle and what kind of impact he may have on the Wild this season.


Lastly, named former Sea Dogs defenseman Yann Sauve the 10th best prospect in the Vancouver Canucks system.

Sauve had two assists in 17 AHL games with the Chicago Wolves last season and also registered 10 goals and nine assists in 32 contests with the ECHL’s Kalamazoo Wings.

The 23-year old will play in the Wallace McCain Memorial Alumni Game on August 24th at Harbour Station.
