Auger Joining UQTR Patriotes

Sebastien Auger will be playing in the Canadian university ranks this coming season.

The Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) Patriotes announced on Saturday that the former Saint John Sea Dogs goaltender has committed to the team for the 2015-16 campaign, according to Radio-Canada and L’Hebdo Journal.

The Patriotes are consistently one of the best hockey teams in the CIS. They appeared at the University Cup this season for the third time in four years, being eliminated in the semifinals by the eventual national champions, the Alberta Golden Bears.

Auger will join Francis Desrosiers in the UQTR crease, giving the school an impressive goaltending tandem.

The 21-year-old spent four years with the Sea Dogs, posting a 77-98 record to go along with a 3.14 goals against average and a .907 save percentage in the regular season. He was the team’s backup during the 2011-12 President Cup winning season and then served as the No. 1 during three rebuilding years. Despite playing on some bad teams, Auger managed to be one of the league’s best goaltenders.

Next year’s University Cup will once again take place at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax.
