Sea Dogs acquire Campoli from Armada

SHAWINIGAN, Que. - The Saint John Sea Dogs made an unexpected move at Saturday's QMJHL Entry Draft.

During the seventh round, the Sea Dogs announced that they have acquired the QMJHL rights of Michael Campoli from the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in exchange for fourth and sixth round picks in 2019.

Campoli, a 20-year-old defenceman, spent last season with the BCHL's Penticton Vees, recording three goals and eight assists in 19 games. A dual citizen who has spent time with the United States development program, Campoli spent the 2016-17 season at Boston College. He announced his departure from the program this past December.

A Pointe-Claire, Que. native, Campoli played midget with the Lac St. Louis Lions and was a fourth-round pick of the Armada in the 2014 QMJHL Entry Draft. He has never appeared in a QMJHL game.

If Campoli reports, Saint John's defence will look drastically different this coming season. Saint John also used their top two first round picks in Saturday's draft to select defencemen.
