Noel Suspended For Tonight's Game

SYDNEY, NS – The Saint John Sea Dogs will be without one of their top forwards tonight in what is, up to this point, the biggest game of the season.

Nathan Noel has been suspended for tonight’s game against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles for what the league calls a dangerous check from behind. The suspension came after a league revision.

This is presumably where the suspension came from.
Noel was given a two-minute penalty on the play, which happened early in the first period. The Sea Dogs went on to win the game in overtime, with Noel setting up Joe Veleno’s extra time goal.

Saint John and Cape Breton have had an odd season series with both teams receiving suspensions after league reviews. Noel’s suspension continues the trend.

Noel has one goal and seven assists so far this post-season but only has one assist in this series so far. 

Game three of the best-of-seven series, which is tied 1-1, takes place tonight at 7 p.m. at Centre 200. The Sea Dogs will now be without two of their top four leading scorers from the regular season. 


  1. what else can happen to the dogs, first the refs from that game and now the league,,,come give a team a break and lay off of them....this is pathetic, and onesidedness

    1. the samething happened when we won back to back I have always said this and stand by it the league don't like english cities
