Alumdate: Sea Dogs in the show

Two games into his NHL career, Chris DiDomenico is still in search of his first point.

DiDomenico, who left his team in Switzerland to sign with the Ottawa Senators recently, made his NHL debut on March 9 in Arizona. The former Sea Dogs star found the scoresheet in an unfortunate way, picking up two minor penalties in 6:55 of ice time.

The 28-year-old also played in the Senators' March 11 game in Colorado, picking up another minor penalty in 9:15 of ice time.

It'll be interesting to see how much DiDomenico is used down the stretch with the Senators battling for playoff positioning.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Huberdeau has been a welcomed addition to the Florida Panthers lineup, recording five goals and eight assists in 16 games. He missed the entire first half with an injury. The Panthers aren't out of the playoff picture just yet, but they will need some things to go their way if they want to make it in.

Nathan Beaulieu will be a healthy scratch tonight when the Montreal Canadiens take on Tomas Jurco's Chicago Blackhawks.
Jurco, who was recently traded to the Blackhawks by the Detroit Red Wings, has been held pointless in six games with Chicago.

Here's a look at how Sea Dogs alumni (and one current player) have preformed in the NHL this season.
