A 0-2-0-0 start to the season has slid the Sea Dogs down the CHL Top 10 rankings.
After placing second in the pre-season rankings, the Sea Dogs have moved down to seventh. The Rouyn-Noranda Huskies (third), Shawinigan Cataractes (sixth) and Drummondville Voltigeurs (10th) were the other QMJHL teams to crack the Top 10. The Charlottetown Islanders were an honourable mention.
