Anderson Officially Traded To Foreurs

The Stephen Anderson trade has been made official.

The Sea Dogs announced today that they have traded the 20-year old forward to the Val-d’Or Foreurs in exchange for a 2015 12th-round draft pick.

In a press release, Sea Dogs general manager Darrell Young explained the deal.

"As an organization, we decided Stephen would not be playing for us following his injury," said Young. "Stephen, his family and his agent all expressed a desire to have him continue to play in the QMJHL. We felt an obligation to try to accommodate him.

"We wish Stephen a healthy and successful career going forward."

Anderson has not played a game since taking a hard hit on January 5, a hit that forced him to spend time in hospital.

A sixth-round pick of the Sea Dogs in the 2011 QMJHL Entry Draft, Anderson registered 29 goals and 39 assists in 127 career regular season games.

The trade leaves Saint John with three 20-year olds on their current roster: forward Mark Tremaine, defenseman Michael Abbott, and goaltender Sebastien Auger.
