The Sea Dogs begin a three-in-three road trek on Thursday night in Shawinigan against the Cataractes. On Friday the team is in Drummondville and on Saturday they visit Blainville-Boisbriand.
Shawinigan, like Saint John, is fighting for playoff positioning in the middle of the standings. The Cataractes currently sit eighth overall with a 26-18-1-2 record. Meanwhile, the Volts are 13th with a 23-23-0-3 record and the Armada sit atop the league standings with a 29-12-2-4 record.
Some other Sea Dogs news and notes:
- Nathan Noel appears in the latest edition of The Hockey News’ Hot List. “Scouts were looking for more from Noel in the first half this season, but the CHL Top Prospects Game seems to have been a turning point,” writes Ryan Kennedy.
