Ward Reassigned; 26 Reamin At Camp

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.


  1. Wondering who the 15th forward is?? I count 9 D-men and 14 Forwards according to the roster on the Sea Dogs website........

    1. .....and that is including Li who isn't listed on the website......

  2. So it will be Siska or Li? What is your opinion? From what I've heard and read, Siska should stay.

  3. Siska vs Li - Age is a factor that should be considered. Is Siska too old to be here for the Memorial Cup run? If not take Li.
