DOGS DAILY: Langan's Number Retired

Andrew Langan only played in 14 QMJHL games but still managed to have an impressive junior career.

Langan was a fifth-round pick of the Sea Dogs in the 2007 QMJHL Entry Draft. The Quispamsis native played in 14 games with Saint John over three seasons, recording three assists.

While he could never earn a full time roster spot with the Sea Dogs, Langan had quite a career at the junior ‘A’ level with the Woodstock Slammers, which was highlighted by captaining the team to the RBC Cup final in 2012.

According to the Slammers website, Langan “would play in 223 games, collecting 98 goals and 144 assists.” Along with making it to the national final in 2012, Langan and the Slammers also won MHL championships in 2010 and 2012.

This past weekend, Langan had his number retired by the Slammers.
Following his junior career, the former Saint John Vito’s forward spent three seasons with the Dalhousie Tigers.
