Harbour Station – Saint John, NB
PREVIEW
SAINT JOHN – Two of the top picks in the 2013 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Entry Draft battle this afternoon at Harbour Station.

For the first time this year, Nathan Noel and the Saint John Sea Dogs host Nicholas Roy and the Chicoutimi Sagueneens. Noel was selected third overall by Saint John while Roy was picked first overall by the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles and later traded to Chicoutimi.

Both rookie forwards are off to respectable starts. Noel has five goals and two assists in 13 games while Roy has two goals and five assists in 15 matches.

Noel, like most Sea Dogs players, has struggled to put up points during Saint John’s current four-game losing skid. The streak has dropped Saint John to 5-7-0-1 on the season and into the basement of the Telus Maritimes Division and 16th overall.

The Sags enter play today with a 7-8-0-0 record and sit fifth in the tough Telus East Division and 12th overall. This will be Chicoutimi’s third game in as many days after playing in Bathurst on Friday and in Charlottetown last night.
