Saturday Notebook

How great are the Olympics, though? Here are some Sea Dogs news and notes from the past couple days…
  • If you hadn’t heard, the Sea Dogs lost 3-1 to the Shawinigan Cataractes on Thursday night at Harbour Station. The first two periods were pretty rough for the Dogs as they found themselves down 3-0 and outshot 32-15.
  • Saint John is now 17th overall in the QMJHL standings and are two points back of Shawinigan who own the final playoff spot. The Sea Dogs now have a game in-hand though with the Cataractes losing last night in Halifax.
  • The Sea Dogs still have not beaten the Cataractes since the 2012 Memorial Cup round-robin game between the two.
  • Saint John is now 0-11-0-1 against Telus East Division teams this season.
  • At Thursday’s game there was a pre-game tribute video for Mike McGraw. Pictured are stickers that were placed on the Sea Dogs’ helmets.
  • Jurij Repe made his return to the Saint John lineup on Thursday, playing in his first game since February 8th. He assisted in Oliver Cooper’s goal.
  • The Sea Dogs have a weird schedule over the next couple weeks. They did not play last night or tonight but will return to action on Sunday in Charlottetown. Next weekend they play a three-in-three.
  • According to the Cape Breton Post, Screaming Eagles “forward Maxim Lazarev was handed a one-game suspension by the league for an open-ice hit on Saint John Sea Dogs forward Kelly Bent on Sunday. Bent wasn’t injured on the play.”
  • The Sea Dogs have announced details on their annual awards banquet. It will be held Tuesday, March 18th at the Delta Brunswick Ballroom.
  • In AUS playoff action, Pierre Durepos and UdeM eliminated Michael Kirkpatrick and StFX last night with a 6-1 win. Durepos and Kirkpatrick each had a goal.
  • In the other first-round series, Saint Mary’s and UPEI will play a deciding Game 3 tomorrow night. Stephen MacAulay had two goals for the Huskies in the 4-1 victory.
