Notebook: $10 Tickets For Home Opener

Photos from Friday’s game at Harbour Station? SN’s Marc Henwood has them over on his Facebook page.

The Sea Dogs announced yesterday that tickets to the team’s regular season home opener on September 19 against Bathurst will be available for just $10.

The deal covers all upper and lower bowl seats.

Season ticket holders will be able to purchase additional tickets for the home opener at the special price by phone or by visiting the Harbour Station Box Office between Tuesday, September 9th, and Saturday, September 13th.

Tickets will also be available to the general public through a special, one-day-only sale on Saturday, September 13th, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in person or by telephone at the box office, or from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. online.

Tickets will return to their regular prices after 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 13th.

Details on pricing and quality still have not been officially released by the league, but there was confirmation Thursday that all games will be webcast this season.

From the league:

Additionally, fans of the QMJHL will be able to watch all 612 games live via webcast provided by Videotron and Rogers on the League’s website.  
New encoders and cameras are currently being installed in all 18 markets to get ready for the start of the season which is less than seven days away.

It also appears that Neulion will be in charge of the webcasts.
Eastlink’s Dan Robertson has a preview of the Maritimes Division.

“This year’s version of the Saint John Sea Dogs will bare a scare resemblance to last year’s group,” writes Robertson on the Sea Dogs. “New General Manager Darryl Young brought nearly 60 players to training camp as the Sea Dogs look to improve after a 19 win season.”

Like the Sea Dogs, the Moncton Wildcats will air on Christian radio this season.

The team announced earlier this week that CITA Radio and new play-by-play announcer, Roger White, will broadcast all games. ‘Cats games will air on CITA 105.1FM in Moncton, 99.1FM in Amherst and 107.3FM in Sussex.

Like News 88.9, Moncton's News 91.9, the former home of the Wildcats, was sold by Rogers.

The Courrier de Portneuf has a brief article en francais on Sea Dogs forward Julien Tessier, who has seemingly earned a roster spot on this year’s team.

Tessier has two goals in four pre-season games.

The website Quebec Junior has an article on Sea Dogs prospect Kyle Ward.

On what the Sea Dogs told him about his performance at training camp:

“That they were very pleased with my camp, but there are some things that I need to improve from my game.  They said that they would consider a holiday call-up with the team.”

Ward, a ninth-round pick in this year’s draft, recorded 11 goals and 17 assists in 28 NB/PEI Major Midget Hockey League games with the Moncton Flyers last season.

Hockey Le Magazine has an article en francais on former Sea Dogs defenseman Eric Gelinas.

Gelinas played in 60 NHL games last season with the New Jersey Devils, recording seven goals and 22 assists.
