Alex Grant, the original Sea Dog, has signed with the Boston Bruins.
Grant was part of the Arizona Coyotes organization last year, appearing in five NHL games. He recorded 11 goals and 31 assists in 69 games with the Springfield Falcons in 2015-16, placing him 10th in AHL scoring by defensemen.

The 27-year-old has registered 43 goals and 174 points in 323 career AHL games, which has turned him into a coveted offensive defenseman at the minor league level.

Grant, who has appeared in seven career NHL contests, was Saint John’s first ever draft pick in 2005. He spent three-and-a-half seasons with the club.

The Antigonish native joins current Sea Dogs defenseman Jakub Zboril in the Bruins system.
