Notebook: Nice Pucks Are Nice

Via Sea Dogs equipment manager David Kelly, here’s a look at Saint John’s pucks for the upcoming 10th anniversary season.
In his Friday column, the Chronicle Herald’s Willy Palov listed Sea Dogs defensemen Jakub Zboril, Luke Green, and Adam Bateman as must-see players in the QMJHL this season.

On Zboril, Palov writes “the Czech blueliner is coming off an outstanding summer season with his national team and is another player pegged as a possible first-rounder for the 2015 NHL draft.”

The Sea Dogs return to pre-season action next Friday at Harbour Station when they host the Charlottetown Islanders at 7:30 p.m. The two teams also meet next Saturday at Eastlink Centre to wrap up exhibition play.

Saint John is 2-1-0-1 in pre-season play so far this year while Charlottetown is 2-2-0-0.

Friday’s game will be the first of three straight between the Dogs and Isles. They also meet on September 12 in Charlottetown to open the regular season.

The Islanders feature former Sea Dogs Oliver Cooper and Will Thompson.

The Sea Dogs are looking for volunteers to join their game night operations staff.

If interested, resumes can be sent to Cole Fowler, Game Day and Community Coordinator, at:

  1. Per Pavlov Sea Dogs have 3 out of top 10 Q rookies to look out for this season. I'm excited. Are you?
