The Sea Dogs were quiet on trade deadline day but a number of former Dogs were dealt.
The Val-d’Or Foreurs have traded 20-year old forward Stephen Anderson to the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in exchange for a 12th-round pick in the 2016 QMJHL Entry Draft.
Anderson has 12 goals and eight assists in 36 games this season. He spent parts of the three previous seasons with Saint John before being traded to Val-d’Or.
The PEI native was one of three players with Sea Dogs connections traded to Cape Breton over the past few days, joining defenseman Olivier LeBlanc and goaltender Bobby Dugan.
“I’m just excited to go to a team like Cape Breton, who seems to be very committed to improving a lot this season, and making a run for it,” Anderson told the Cape Breton Post. “I’m very excited to finish (my junior career) off back on the east coast in Cape Breton.”
The Eagles currently sit out of a playoffs spot with a 13-21-2-3 record. They host the Gatineau Olympiques tomorrow night at Centre 200.
Former Sea Dogs defenseman Alexander McQuaid also has a new home as the Quebec Remparts dealt him to the Chicoutimi Sagueneens in exchange for Brian Lovell.
McQuaid had three assists in 53 games with Saint John last season. This year with the Remparts he has two assists in 32 games.
In other news, the Memorial Cup hosting Remparts just got a whole lot better with Anthony Duclair returning to junior.
