Wednesday News & Notes

The return of Jakub Zboril is a welcome addition to the Saint John Sea Dogs' lineup.

In his two games since returning from injury, the rookie defenseman has a goal and two assists.

His time away from Saint John’s lineup hasn’t hurt his draft status all that much. Sportsnet’s Damien Cox has him ranked 17th in his February draft rankings while the Chronicle Herald’s Willy Palov believes he is the fourth best prospect available from the QMJHL.

Zboril’s agent, Allan Walsh, has shockingly chimed in via Twitter.
Some other Sea Dogs news and notes…

  • In Cox’s draft rankings, he mentions that Thomas Chabot has been “limping along on sore hip flexor of late. Has had to stay in the lineup because of injuries to other Sea Dogs defenders.
  • In Palov’s rankings, Chabot was ranked as the fifth best prospect available from the QMJHL. Sherbrooke’s Jeremy Roy topped the list.
  • In Buzzing the Net’s CHL ‘Hot or Not’ this week, the Sea Dogs are not considered to be the league’s hottest team right now.
  • According to La Presse, Harbour Station has one of the QMJHL’s highest property values.
  • Saturday is Country Night at Harbour Station.
  • The Sea Dogs are back in action on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at Harbour Station when they host the Charlottetown Islanders. The Isles were scheduled to host the Moncton Wildcats tonight but the game was postponed due to weather.
