REPORT: Green Hurt; Dubois Suspended

SYDNEY, NS – The Saint John Sea Dogs and Cape Breton Screaming Eagles could both be missing key players when the QMJHL playoffs begin next week.

Sea Dogs defenseman Luke Green did not return after receiving this hit from Pierre-Luc Dubois in the first period of last night’s game at Centre 200. There was no penalty on the play.
TVA Sports’ Mikael Lalancette reports Green could be out two to four weeks, which is a huge loss for Saint John, especially with Bailey Webster and Alex Bernier still out with injuries.
Meanwhile, Thomas Chabot missed most of last night’s game after blocking a shot. We should know more about his status today. The Sea Dogs, who were already without three of their top forwards in Matthew Highmore, Mathieu Joseph and Adam Marsh due to injuries, finished the match with just four defenseman. Kyle Ward and Samuel Dove-McFalls saw some time on the backend.

The league has suspended Dubois “until further notice,” which is a huge loss for the Screaming Eagles. Dubois, a top prospect for this year’s NHL Draft, has 99 points on the year.

The Sea Dogs and Screaming Eagles wrap up the regular season today at 4 p.m. at Centre 200.
