Sea Dogs Notebook

The Sea Dogs are back in action tomorrow night when they travel across the Confederation Bridge to Charlottetown to face the Islanders. Game time is 7pm at Eastlink Centre.

The Islanders are off to a great 4-0 start this season and defeated the Sea Dogs 3-2 in a shootout last Sunday at Harbour Station. The game saw the two teams combine for 45 hits and a nine round shootout.

The Sea Dogs then return home to host the Sherbrooke Phoenix on Saturday night at 7pm at the Station.

Country 94’s news blog has an article on the Sea Dogs Tim Card’s that can now be purchased “at locations between Sussex and St. Stephen.”

Sea Dogs President Wayne Long tells CHSJ News it's something they always thought about doing. 
He says you always see the cards with a winter scene or the Tim Horton's camps and they thought it would be a great idea to have a Sea Dogs logo on one of those cards.

Quite a few teams in the CHL are selling these things this year.

The Ducks blog Anaheim Calling previews some of the newcomers to the AHL’s Norfolk Admirals this season. Among the newcomers is former Sea Dogs defenseman Kevin Gagne.

“With his impressive amount of awards, two time QMJHL champ, Memorial Cup Winner, 2013 QMJHL Defenseman of the Year, 2013 First All-Star Team, I am hoping that he can make an impact pretty quickly on both ends of the ice,” writes shawndubstep. “His size isn't that good for a defenseman, 5'8, but he seems to have the right pedigree to succeed.”

There are a couple Jonathan Huberdeau articles floating around. The first is from the Florida Sun Sentinel.

“We want more of the same,” Panthers general manager Dale Tallon said. “He’ll be stronger, fitter and pain-free. I expect bigger and better from him. He’ll have some hiccups as well over 82 games. Even veteran players have hiccups, ups and downs in an 82-game season.’’

The second is from the NHLPA website which brings us the headline “Huberdeau Hunting Hardware in Florida.”

This person is upset.
Okay then.

Sea Dogs Academy is back. All the details on this year’s program can be found on the Sea Dogs website.


  1. "They do send out good Breaking News alerts, but sending one out every time a hockey game ends, really gets me." - I feel bad for him. If there are 2 games in a weekend... he gets 2 tweets that waste his time. It's gotta be horrible for him.
