19-year old forward Kelly Bent is no longer with the team after being claimed off waivers by the Halifax Mooseheads. In 103 career QMJHL games, the gritty forward has recorded five goals and five assists.
The Sea Dogs acquired Bent from the Gatineau Olympiques last year. Last season he registered four goals and two assists in 56 regular season games with Saint John.
Prior to Saint John and Gatineau, Bent was with the PEI Rocket.
