Saint John Sea Dogs games against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan will have an interesting element to them this coming season.
The Titan announced today that Brad Flynn, son of Sea Dogs head coach Danny Flynn, has joined the team as an assistant coach.
From the Titan website:
First, Brad Flynn will join the team as an assistant coach. Last season, Flynn occupied the same role with the Corpus Christi IceRays in the North American Hockey League (NAHL), after having filled the roles of assistant coach and assistant general manager with the Swan Valley Stampeders in Manitoba for the two prior seasons.
It is quite an impressive road for the young man, whom during his playing career, most notably played for the University of Southern Maine in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) as well as Brock University at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport level.

The 2015-16 QMJHL schedule has not yet been released. The Sea Dogs and Titan will likely play each other a ridiculous amount of times, as per usual.
