26 players remain at Saint John Sea Dogs training camp.
The team announced this morning that forward Kyle Ward has been reassigned from their training camp roster. Ward, 16, was a ninth-round pick of the Sea Dogs in this year’s QMJHL Entry Draft.
The Sackville native recorded 11 goals and 17 assists in 28 NB/PEI Major Midget AAA Hockey League games with the Moncton Flyers last season. He also had two goals in five games with Team Atlantic at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
There are now 26 players remaining on Saint John’s camp roster, consisting of three goaltenders, eight defensemen, and 15 forwards.
It appears the Dogs will cut at least one more forward, and it will presumably be between imports Juraj Siska and Nikita Li.
Saint John’s next pre-season game is on September 5 at Harbour Station against the Charlottetown Islanders.
