Sea Dogs Announce Roster

The Saint John Sea Dogs announced the 26 players who will start the regular season with the club today.

Of the 26 players, 16 played with the team last season. Along with the returning players are some high end rookies, specifically first-round picks Nathan Noel and Will Thompson.

There are no huge surprises on the roster. The full thing can be seen on the Sea Dogs website.

The Sea Dogs also announced via press release that American defenseman Steven Duda has been reassigned and defenseman Sheehan Kirkwood, a free agent invitee to camp from Ontario, is awaiting reassignment.

Also, “the Sea Dogs have received permission from the QMJHL to carry one player above the allowable roster limit due an injury in goal.” Alex Fournier, last year’s backup, did not play in any pre-season games due to injury.

This is a young team that will have plenty of ups and plenty of downs this season. But it should be an enjoyable team to watch.

"It's an exciting, young roster, filled with skill and speed," said Sea Dogs' Head Coach and General Manager Mike Kelly in a release. "Our kids will have the opportunity to play and grow together, as a team."

Saint John begins the regular season on Friday night in Moncton.
