So who is left at Sea Dogs training camp? Via the team’s newsletter, here is who remains:

Goaltenders (2)

Forwards (15)

F Sam Povorozniouk
F Matthew Highmore
F Samuel Dove-McFalls
F Spencer Smallman
F Julien Tessier
F Mathieu Joseph
F Matt Green
F Alex Kealey
F Dawson Theede
F Bokondji Imama

Of the 25 players on this list, nine are expected to attend NHL camps next month. Much like the beginning of the 2011-12 season, the Sea Dogs appear destined to start the year quite shorthanded, meaning some call-ups will have to be made.

Both Alex D’Orio and Cedric Pare are heading to the Quebec midget AAA ranks. D’Orio will rejoin the Magog Cantonniers while Pare will suit up with the Levis Commandeurs.

The newspaper Reflect du Lac has an article on D’Orio. Last season, the 16-year-old registered a 2.30 goals against average with a .916 save percentage in 23 games.

Pare recorded six goals and seven assists in 41 games with Levis last season.

By the sounds of this tweet by Cedric Pare, it sounds like the first round pick will be back in Saint John for opening night on Sept. 12.
Pare, along with Alex D'Orio, was reassigned by the Sea Dogs on Thursday.

Forwards Spencer Smallman, Mathieu Joseph, Boko Imama, Adam Marsh, Nathan Noel and Samuel Dove-McFalls are all heading top NHL camps next month, meaning the Sea Dogs will need to add some reinforcements up front.

Saturday’s Sea Dogs-Wildcats game at Harbour Station will be broadcast live on Rogers TV across New Brunswick, according to Rogers TV.
A pre-season game on TV. We’ve come a long way over the past year.

Former Sea Dogs goaltender Blade Mann-Dixon has reportedly left Moncton Wildcats camp and will return to the Valley Wildcats of the Maritime Hockey League for another season.
Mann-Dixon was traded to the Wildcats by the Sea Dogs last week. He appeared in two pre-season games with the ‘Cats, allowing a total of three goals against on 28 shots.

The Ottawa Senators blog Silver Sevens has listed Sea Dogs defenseman Thomas Chabot at No. 12 in their “top 25 under 25” rankings.

Chabot was drafted 18th overall by the Sens in June’s NHL Draft. As the blog notes, Ottawa has had some success in developing offensive defensemen.

The Boston Bruins blog “Causeway Crowd” has an article on Sea Dogs defenseman Jakub Zboril.
