Ben Reid and Pierre-Luc Lurette have been recalled by the Saint John Sea Dogs.
Reid, a forward, and Lurette, a defenseman, are expected to be available for the Sea Dogs’ regular season opener on Sept. 12 against the Halifax Mooseheads.
The Sea Dogs will have nine players heading to NHL camps in the coming weeks and some or all of those players will miss the team’s season opener. Reid and Lurette will provide some reinforcements.
Reid, a 16-year-old from Quispamsis, was a seventh-round pick of the Sea Dogs in this year’s QMJHL Entry Draft. He recorded 13 goals and 16 assists in 35 games with the Saint John Vito’s last season.
Lurette, a 17-year-old defenseman from Val d’Amour, NB, recorded four goals and nine assists in 43 games with the MHL’s Campbellton Tigers last year. Lurette was a sixth-round pick of the Sea Dogs in this year’s draft.
Saint John has two pre-season games remaining before they look ahead to the regular season. The Sea Dogs will host the Moncton Wildcats on Thursday at 7 p.m. The team wraps up exhibition play on Friday in Bouctouche against the Wildcats.
