SAINT JOHN – Welcome to August.
By now you are probably realizing that summer is winding down and that the weather has been kind of suckish, you still haven’t painted that stupid deck, and it’s probably going to snow any day now. But hey, it’s August, which means hockey returns soon and joy and happiness comes along with it.
In just over a week, Sea Dogs training camp begins. Two weeks from tonight the Sea Dogs host the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in pre-season action. Hockey season is almost here.
