SAINT JOHN – The Saint John Sea Dogs have announced defenceman David Comeau will remain with the team through the end of the season.
The 19-year-old from Fredericton was acquired from the Victoriaville Tigres on December 28th. He has one assist in five games with the Sea Dogs. He played five games with Victoriaville before the trade, but spent most of the season with the Woodstock Slammers of the Maritime Hockey League (MHL) where he had three goals and 14 points in 26 games.
Comeau was selected by the Charlottetown Islanders in the eleventh round (187th overall) of the 2014 QMJHL Entry Draft. He had two assists in 26 games over two seasons with Charlottetown between 2014 and 2016.
“David earned his way onto our hockey club with a strong work ethic and solid play in his brief time with us,” said Sea Dogs President and General Manager Trevor Georgie. “He provides much-needed depth to our blueline and we’re happy to have him stay in Saint John this season.”
The Sea Dogs also announced defenceman Bryson Michel has been reassigned to the Wellington Dukes of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL).
The native Orleans, Ontario, was signed as a free agent by Saint John in September. He posted a +1 rating and four penalty minutes in 13 games for the Sea Dogs this season.
He will remain on Saint John’s 55-player protected list.
“This move gives Bryson an opportunity to play and further his development,” Georgie said. “He’s only 17 years old. He’s going to a great league where he can play closer to his home. We see Bryson as a player who can compete at the QMJHL level and we will monitor his progress.”
