Two Sea Dogs named to U Sports team

Two former Saint John Sea Dogs have been named to the U Sports team that will take on Canada's national junior team later this month.

Goaltender Sebastien Auger and forward Stephen Anderson have both been named to the all-star team, which was announced on Monday.

The U Sports squad will face Canada on Wednesday, Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. and Thursday, Dec. 14 at 5 p.m. at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines, Ont. The games will be part of Canada's evaluation camp ahead of the World Junior Hockey Championship.

This is the third straight year a U Sports all star team has face Canada's junior team.

Auger, who spent four seasons with the Sea Dogs from 2011 to 2015, is in his third season with UQTR. He is 6-4 this year with an impressive 2.28 goals against average and a .917 save percentage.

Anderson, who played with the Sea Dogs from 2011 to 2014, is in his third season with UNB. He has 11 goals and nine assists 18 games to lead the Varsity Reds in scoring. His 11 goals is tied for the AUS lead.

Another notable on the U Sports team is UNB's Randy Gazzola.

There could be some Sea Dogs content on the Canadian side, but that seems unlikely. Joe Veleno is likely the only Saint John player who could get an invite. The camp invitations are expected to be announced this week.

The world juniors begin on Boxing Day in Buffalo.
