Are the Sea Dogs fighting this season?

Since fighting hasn't been a hot topic of discussion in the QMJHL of late, you may be surprised to learn that Cole Reginato is tied for the league lead in scraps this season.

Reginato's seven fights ties him with Alexandre Drapeau of the Quebec Remparts for the most in the QMJHL, according to

Only four Sea Dogs have been credited with multiple fights this season: Reginato (seven), Kyle Ward (three), Landon Quinney (two) and Chase Stewart (two). Somewhat surprisingly - although finding opponents is no doubt a challenge - is that Bokondji Imama has just one fight all year.

The Victoriaville Tigres lead the league in fighting majors this season with 30. The Sea Dogs aren't far off though with 22, which is fourth most in the league. Cape Breton (24) and Baie-Comeau (24) also sit ahead of Saint John.

The Sea Dogs had 52 fights in 2015-16, up slightly from the 48 they had in 2014-15.

The franchise record for fights in a season is 91, set during the woeful 2006-07 campaign. The franchise low is 30, set during the 2008-09 season.
