Allan Muir, SI’s NHL writer, had an article on SI.com today about the Sea Dogs’ search for a GM.
“We’ve had some great candidates apply already,” said Sea Dogs president Wayne Long, “but we just want it out there that the job is open and we are committed to the process.”
“We are being open-minded and will select the best candidate for sure,” Long added.
Head coach Ross Yates and head scout Christian Vermette have been splitting the GM duties since Mike Kelly was dismissed. The duo will be busy over the next couple weeks with the QMJHL’s trading period beginning on Sunday.
