DOGS DAILY: Zboril Invited To WJC Camp

It was announced yesterday that Sea Dogs defenseman Jakub Zboril has been invited to the Czech Republic’s world junior evaluation camp.

According to a Sea Dogs news release, Zboril “participated in the club's U20 summer camp in the Czech Republic in June and represented his country at a U20 Three Nations tournament in Calgary in August.

“Other recent international experience includes the 2015 U18 World Championship in Switzerland, where he picked up one goal and one assist in three games. He also played in the 2014 U18 World Championship, the 2013 and 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournaments and the 2013 World Junior A Challenge.”

The Boston Bruins prospect has three goals and six assists in 20 games with Saint John this season.

In other news…

  • The Halifax Mooseheads website has an article on the contributions their team has gotten from their overage trio. That trio includes former Dogs forward Kelly Bent who has one goal and two assists in 22 games this year.
