have made another trade, dealing Daniel Del Paggio to the Gatineau Olympiques.
In exchange, the Sea Dogs receive third- and fifth-round picks in the 2019 QMJHL Entry Draft.
Del Paggio was the odd-man-out in the Sea Dogs' overage situation. When Bokondji Imama returned from Tampa Bay Lightning camp, joining Matthew Highmore and Spencer Smallman as 20-year-old players, someone had to be moved.
The forward played in two games with Saint John this season, recording three assists. He sat out both games last weekend with Imama, Smallman and Highmore all playing.
The Thunder Bay native joined the Sea Dogs in 2014-15, recording 10 goals and 12 assists in 62 games in his first major junior season. Last year, Del Paggio registered 20 goals and 35 assists in 65 regular season games. He added another four goals and eight helpers in 17 matches.
Del Paggio will get to see his former team very soon - the Olympiques play in Saint John tomorrow night at 7 p.m.
