Sea Dogs Confirm Two Trades

The Sea Dogs have confirmed a couple of trades this evening.

From a press release:

Defenceman Jason Bell has been traded to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2016 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Entry Draft and a third-round pick in 2018.  
Forward Julien Tessier goes to the Chicoutimi Sagueneens in exchange for a conditional second-round draft pick in 2018.

The condition on the Tessier trade is apparently based on the number of games the second-year forward plays in. Tessier has been dealing with a health issue this season. He tweeted about the deal:
As did Bell:
The Sea Dogs open up the second half of the season against Bell and the Titan on Dec. 28 at Harbour Station.

The QMJHL has been a bit slow at confirming trades on their website this year for whatever reason. A couple of big deals involving the Charlottetown Islanders were confirmed today though as Alexandre Goulet (pictured... sort of) was dealt to Victoriaville for Samuel Blais and David Henley was sent to Val-d’Or for draft picks.

The Islanders find themselves in an odd situation with the news of Daniel Sprong heading back to the QMJHL. Despite today’s deals and the fact that they are sitting in the league’s basement, the Isles apparently want to be buyers. We’ll see how that works out.

The QMJHL’s trading period ends on Jan. 6.
