KENSINGTON, PEI - Saint John Sea Dogs prospect Chris Sarault was named the most valuable player and top forward at this year’s Atlantic Major Midget AAA Championship in Kensington, PEI.
Sarault reportedly suffered a broken arm in yesterday’s win against the St. John’s Maple Leafs, cutting his tournament short. Sarault’s Moncton Flyers lost 4-3 to the Newbridge Academy Gladiators in today’s championship game.
The Gladiators will now represent the Atlantic region at the 2015 Telus Cup in Riviere-du-Loup from April 20-26.
Sarault, an eighth-round pick of Saint John in the 2013 QMJHL Entry Draft, recorded four goals and three assists in three games at the tournament, placing him in a tie for the scoring lead. He was also named a first team all-star.
Fellow Sea Dogs prospect Kyle Ward is also a member of the Flyers. He had two goals and two assists in four round robin games and also recorded a goal and an assist in today’s championship contest.
Quispamsis and the Saint John Vitos will host next year’s Telus Cup.
