Steven Anthony Traded

Former Sea Dogs forward Steven Anthony was involved in the Roberto Luongo blockbuster trade today.

The Vancouver Canucks traded Anthony and Luongo to the Florida Panthers in exchange for forward Shawn Matthias and goaltender Jacob Markstrom.
Anthony played four seasons with Saint John from 2007-2011 and finished off his junior career with a Memorial Cup Championship. In 244 regular season games Anthony had 66 goals and 163 points. In 33 playoff games he had another seven goals and 17 points.

The Halifax native was a seventh-round pick of the Canucks in 2009. He has played in the East Coast Hockey League and Central Hockey League since his professional career began. In 33 games with the CHL’s St. Charles Chill this season he has four goals and 10 assists.

  1. You have to think that Jonathan Huberdeau had a little part in this trade. Anthony has too much talent to be stuck down in the ECHL. Hopefully Steven will get to live up to expectations.
