Notebook: Catching Up

If you've liked the photos you’ve seen on here this season, be sure to like Marc Henwood Photography on Facebook. He’s uploaded some unreal pics.

A game-changing move. If you’ve tried one, we welcome reviews.

The Sea Dogs play two home games this weekend, hosting the Baie-Comeau Drakkar on Saturday at 7 p.m. and the Quebec Remparts on Sunday at 3 p.m. It is the only visit of the season to Saint John for both teams.

The Drakkar sit second in the East Division with a 9-4-0-1 record while the Remparts, this year’s Memorial Cup hosts, are third with an 8-5-0-0 record.

After this weekend’s bizarre set of games, Nathan Noel and Adam Marsh are tied for the team lead in points with 14 each. Noel has a team high eight goals while Thomas Chabot leads the team in assists with eight.

Chabot’s 11 points place him fourth in QMJHL defensemen scoring. Marsh's 14 points place him fifth amongst rookies.

If you haven’t heard, the CHLPA is making some noise again. Here is the latest statement issued by the CHL and its league commissioners.


“The Sea Dogs have been a big surprise early on, leading a very competitive Atlantic Division that includes Halifax and Cape Breton,” writes Ryan Kennedy. “Part of the reason for their success is Marsh, a free agent rookie from Chicago who has posted six goals and 11 points in his first nine games. The left winger goes to the dirty areas and has a wicked shot.”

Sportsnet unveiled their top 30 NHL Draft prospects list last week. The rankings were put together by Damien Cox, Gare Joyce, Jeff Marek and Sam Cosentino.

Defenseman Jakub Zboril was the only Sea Dog to make the list.

“The whole package, skilled and tough, reminds some of Florida’s Dmitri Kulikov,” the article said of Zboril.

Sea Dogs property and current Boston University Terrier Jack Eichel was ranked second.

Willy Palov of the Chronicle Herald ranked the top 10 NHL Draft prospects from the QMJHL last week.

Palov has Jakub Zboril ranked fourth and Nathan Noel seventh. Sherbrooke’s Jeremy Roy tops the list.

The Iowa Wild website had a nice article on former Sea Dogs forward Zack Phillips last week.

“The goal is to show up for every game and play just as well as I can,” said Phillips. “I need to play consistent and do whatever I can to help the team win.”

In four games with the Minnesota Wild's AHL team this season, Phillips has one assist.
