Friday notes: Records update

Matthew Highmore continues to inch closer to several Saint John Sea Dogs franchise records.

After recording two assists against the Baie-Comeau Drakkar last Saturday, Highmore moved into second all-time in assists by a Sea Dog with 145. He is just eight back of Jonathan Huberdeau's franchise record.
Highmore now has 227 points in his Sea Dogs career, good for third all-time. With 23 Sea Dogs games remaining in the regular season, the 20-year-old forward sits behind Michael Kirkpatrick (251) and Huberdeau (257). It's not impossible for Highmore to take the franchise lead, but he'll have to steadily produce for the rest of the season.
Highmore and Mathieu Joseph are also inching up the Sea Dogs' all-time goal scoring list. It will take an impressive second half for one of them to surpass Kirkpatrick's record, though.
A record that should be broken - knock on wood - is the all-time games played mark, which is currently held by Mike Thomas (288). Spencer Smallman is currently second (273) while Highmore is third (270).

Other things ...
