Ex-Sea Dogs on the Titan: Defenseman Jason Bell

Player to watch: Antoine Morand, who was picked second overall in the 2015 QMJHL Entry Draft behind Joe Veleno, is fourth in QMJHL rookie scoring with 10 goals and 23 assists for 33 points in 30 games.

3 Things to Know
1. The Titan have the second worst road record in the league this season (4-11-1-1). The Baie-Comeau Drakkar have the worst with just one road win in 16 tries.

2. Bathurst entered the Christmas break on a three-game winning streak, beating Drummondville (5-2) once and Charlottetown twice (2-1 and 6-1).

3. The Titan enter the second half with 29 points and sit 4th in the Maritimes Division. The Halifax Mooseheads and Charlottetown Islanders, who sit 5th and 6th in the division, respectively, also have 29 points.

Other notes: The Sea Dogs will, obviously, be without defensemen Thomas Chabot and Jakub Zboril due to the world juniors… the Sea Dogs traded Jason Bell to the Titan last week... this will be just the third meeting of the season between Bathurst and Saint John. Meanwhile, Saint John and Moncton have already met six times... this tweet is interesting.
