16 Games We're Looking Forward To

Saint John’s 2013-14 regular season begins on Friday night in Moncton. Here are the 16 games we are most looking forward to this season.

Friday, September 13th at Moncton – the Sea Dogs regular season opener. There’ll probably be some big time light show or something awesome at the Coliseum.

Saturday, September 21st vs Bathurst – Saint John’s home opener. Be there.

Sunday, September 22nd vs Charlottetown – the first time the team known as the “Charlottetown Islanders” comes to Harbour Station. Their jerseys are… yeah.

Tuesday, October 1st vs Halifax – the Sea Dogs play the defending President Cup and Memorial Cup champions for the first time this season.

Saturday, October 19th vs Quebec – it’s the Remparts. Cody Donaghey vs Connor Donaghey. Also ‘Pink in the Rink’ night.

Sunday, October 20th vs Chicoutimi – Saint John fans get their first look at the top pick in the QMJHL Entry Draft, Nicolas Roy, going head-to-head against Nathan Noel. That is if Roy feels like playing in the Maritimes.

Friday, October 25th at Baie-Comeau – this will be the second stop on the Sea Dogs’ first Quebec road trip of the year. Strange things always seem to happen when the Drakkar and Sea Dogs meet.

Saturday, November 16th at Gatineau – the Sea Dogs return to the place where they won their first President Cup for the only time this season.

December 28th/29th vs/at Moncton – no New Year’s doubleheader this season so this will have to do. There will still probably be big crowds at both games. 

Thursday, January 9th at Rimouski – the Sea Dogs return to the site where they won their second President Cup for the only time this season.

Saturday, January 11th at Quebec – always interesting to see how young teams play in front of 10,000+ at the Colisee Pepsi.

Wednesday, January 29th at Shawinigan – the Sea Dogs make their only trip to Shawinigan this season. Saint John went 0-2-1-0 against the Cataractes last season and haven’t beat them since the final game of round robin action at the 2012 Memorial Cup. #NeverForget

Thursday, February 20th vs Shawinigan – the Cataractes make their only trip to Harbour Station this season. It would be so great if the 2012 rivalry between these two could keep going.

Saturday, March 8th vs Halifax – final home game of the regular season. It’s fan appreciation day so come feel appreciated.

Saturday, March 15th at Charlottetown – the final game of the regular season. May or may not have meaning in the standings.
