Notebook: The Season Has Arrived

It’s time.

The Saint John Sea Dogs open up the 2015-16 regular season on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Harbour Station when they host the Halifax Mooseheads. The Sea Dogs will be without a plethora of key, returning players, meaning several youngsters will literally be put into the spotlight.

The Mooseheads opened their season up on Friday, falling 4-3 in a shootout to the Islanders in Charlottetown.

Saint John also plays on Sunday, hosting the Moncton Wildcats at 3 p.m.

Sea Dogs defenseman Luke Green was ranked 30th in Craig Button’s September “Craig’s List” rankings.

Most major draft publications have Green projected to be a late first round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

Val’d-Or’s Julien Gauthier, sixth, was the highest ranked QMJHL player in "Craig's List."


There is always one key piece of information to take from it – the dates of the holiday trading period. This year’s period will begin on Dec. 19, 2015 and end on Jan. 6, 2016.

The Sea Dogs will be one of just two Maritimes Division teams to appear on MAtv this season.

The Quebec network released their full QMJHL broadcast schedule earlier this week. Saint John’s Nov. 21 game in Chicoutimi will air live on MAtv, giving Joe Veleno and company some airtime in Quebec.

The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles are the only other Atlantic team that will air on MAtv this year.

The broadcast schedules for Sportsnet and TVA Sports have not yet been released.

It was a rough day of camp for three of Boston’s top prospects on Thursday – including Sea Dogs defenseman Jakub Zboril.
Probably not the end of the world. Probably.

The QMJHL has made a number of rule adjustments for the 2015-16 season.

Changes have been made to the overtime format, embellishment penalties, the trapezoid area, faceoffs, high sticking, equipment and fighting. Click here for more info.

The Chronicle Herald has a photo gallery of what the Scotiabank Centre now looks like following an off-season of renovations.

The Sea Dogs are in Halifax on Sept. 19.
